Am I Addicted to Marijuana?

This quiz is a self-guided assessment that has been created from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders which is the standard criteria for diagnosing mental health and substance use disorders. This assessment contains “yes” or “no” questions relative to your Marijuana use during the last 12 months. If you’re looking for answers about an alcohol use disorder, this quiz does not contain questions about alcohol abuse, you can take this quiz for alcoholism instead. If you're concerned about the prescription drug use of a loved one, take the quiz Is My Loved One Addicted To Prescription Drugs? If you are concerned a loved one is taking illicit drugs, take our Is My Loved One Addicted To Illicit Drugs?

Please answer “yes” or “no” based on your Marijuana use only. In the past 12 months, have you:

Used more marijuana than you intended?
Been unable to cut down or control your marijuana use?
Spent a significant amount of time obtaining marijuana, using it or recovering from its effects?
Felt overwhelming cravings for marijuana?
Failed to fulfill obligations at work, home or school because of your marijuana use?
Continued to use marijuana despite it causing recurring social or interpersonal problems?
Faced legal consequences (possession charges, arrest, incarceration, etc.) of your marijuana use?
Lost interest in social, occupational or recreational activities you once enjoyed because of your marijuana use?
Chosen to use marijuana in situations in which it was physically hazardous?
Continued to use marijuana even if it worsens the symptoms of any mental health issues you face (anxiety, depression, etc.)?
Developed a tolerance to marijuana, meaning you need to take increased amounts of marijuana to feel the same effects?
Experienced marijuana withdrawal symptoms, or taken drugs to avoid withdrawal symptoms?
