Marijuana in Pennsylvania-Becoming More Legal?
What can I do about marijuana usage? If you're struggling with a dependence to marijuana, it can be difficult to know where to turn. Marijuana is not physiologically addictive, but it can be psychologically addictive. What's the difference? Physiological addiction means that your body is dependent on it, whereas psychological addiction means that you simply crave the feeling you get-you want to feel that way. But now, as there is some move in PA toward perhaps legalizing recreational marijuana, it's a good time to stop and consider whether you're psychologically addicted. After all, some forms of legalization are coming fast. "A state Senate committee on Friday unanimously approved a bill that would legalize the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes for patients with certain medical conditions," reported philly.com.

Medical Marijuana in PA
PA is getting set to legalize medical marijuana, which has long been outlawed in PA. "The individuals who will be helped most by this sort of treatment are some of the state’s most vulnerable residents, including children who suffer from debilitating seizures who have exhausted all other treatment options," said Sen. Chuck McIlhinney (R., Bucks). And though of course people should get the medicine they need, some people see a future like California's, where nearly anyone can get a "medical" marijuana card. And, indeed, some people are pushing for recreational legalization for Pennsylvania. Click here to learn more about PA medical marijuana.
Recreational Marijuana Close to Being Legalized?
Marijuana legalization activists are pushing in Pennsylvania to make pot a legal substance-and they might get what they want, someday. Marijuana is already very widely used, in PA and elsewhere in the United States. In Millersville University, for example, all of 93% of undergraduate students said that their student peers smoked marijuana. In an interesting twist, a drug counselor on campus estimates it's closer to the national average. And he believes that the reason students think pot smoking is so widespread is that they are so accepting of marijuana usage among their peers. If you're struggling with a psychological addiction to marijuana, you need rehab, not legalization.
