Abstract

I wanted to find out if marijuana and caffeine addictions the same type of addiction. Marijuana and caffeine addictions were looked at for both substances are widely used and not regularly associated with addiction. I wanted to find out how much of each drug it took to become addicted and what made the substance addictive. After finding out how the substance was addictive I wanted to be able to classify what type of addiction each substance produced. I did this by analyzing many different articles and compiling my findings. My hypothesis was that both drugs produce physical addictions. Instead it was found that marijuana addictions are different than caffeine addictions. Marijuana addictions may start by being psychologically addictive and after continual usage develops into a physical addiction, whereas caffeine is physically addictive.
