...uh, Nayeli. It's not the pot that makes them steal, it's having to buy the pot at black market prices because that's the only way you can get it.

"it's having to buy the pot at black market prices because that's the only way you can get it."

No. That assumes they're addicts who HAVE to have it. Pot isn't addictive in the classic sense.

They're teenagers. Doesn't that explain most of it? Lock them up.

If they had a flask of Captain Morgan, would you claim it's alcoholism?

@ Steve C:

So, the addiction to pot is so strong that they hate having to travel to other towns to get their "prescription" (*cough cough)...so it drives them to break into someone's house?

And, you don't think that the inebriation from marijuana has anything to do with it?

Yeah...talk about "straining a gnat and swallowing a camel!"

Marijuana is an inebriating drug that is detrimental to individuals and society. Life is too good to be spent in an inebriated stupor.
