Marijuana Addiction Self-Assessment Quiz

After alcohol and tobacco, marijuana is the most commonly used drug in the United States, and despite popular belief, this substance can be addictive. In 2015, approximately 4 million Americans met the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’s (DSM) criteria for marijuana use disorder. Using the same DSM criteria, this marijuana self-assessment can help you evaluate your marijuana use and risk of addiction. However, the results of this quiz cannot substitute for a clinical diagnosis of marijuana use disorder. After receiving your results, talk with your doctor about marijuana addiction or call The Recovery Village marijuana hotline to speak with a representative.

Am I Addicted to Marijuana?

This assessment asks “yes” or “no” questions regarding your marijuana use in the past 12 months. There are no questions pertaining to alcohol use. If you’d rather complete a quiz about alcoholism, you can take a CAGE, MAST or AUDIT test, instead.

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?
