    A drug addict I am. And guess what?

    I'm Finally Admitting It: I'm A Pothead

    Before I begin, I ask that you please don't tell me that you can't get addicted to weed. True, your body doesn't experience any withdrawal symptoms for real, but you can still want it like crazy. If I have a 20 in my pocket, I give in to that urge. And to me, that's being...
