DSM-5 has added Marijuana Withdrawal

The newest version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) now includes Marijuana Withdrawal. This is great news – in my experience, people minimize marijuana’s addictiveness and maybe this will help change that.

 (1) irritability, anger, or aggression

 (2) nervousness or anxiety

(3) sleep difficulty (e.g., insomnia, disturbing dreams)  

 (4) decreased appetite or weight loss

 (5) restlessness

 (6) depressed mood

 (7) at least one of the following physical symptoms: stomach pain, shakiness/tremors, sweating, fever, chills, headache
