There really isn't any difference though. Dependence is dependence. Doesn't matter how you become hooked. You still experience both psychological and physical withdrawal symptoms when you stop if you abused it hardcore enough.
Granted, it's nothing like heroin withdrawal (from what I've heard
from heroin addicts, no personal experience there thankfully), but still not easy to quit if it becomes an everyday ritual for you. And despite the little segment on "Half Baked" about how it pales in comparison to coke and other drugs is irrelevant.
