Marijuana & Addiction Quotes

I am a big fan of short, punchy quotes when i am trying to motivate myself for anything. I paste them around the house, on my computer and use them in email signatures. Some think a single flippant quote might be meaningless but they msis the big picture in that it is you who applies the personal meaning to those quotes where they touch on something you can empathise with or something you want to aspire too. For marijuana addiction these are some of my favourites and some favourites of ex addicts i know.
