This means they need larger and larger amounts of marijuana to get the same desired effects as they used to get from smaller amounts.

No, not physical addictio, does that even say physical in there? It's mental addiction and that only means you want to do it because it feels good, and it's not a strong addiction. Plus what does alcohol do? Very similar. In only some people the addiction is stronger than others. But in most people it doesn't even happen and it's more of a social think.
