There are many signs you have a pot addiction whenever it be warnings while you are smoking or sometimes things that have happened when you have tried to quit. Some people freely admit they are or were added while others struggle with the concept of being added to a drug that has no physical dependency issues like cigarettes or heroin but is instead a psychological addiction making it harder to recognize from your own view point. Some things you may want to look for in yourself or in others who might be addicted to marijuana are as follows:

Have tried to quit smoking pot and failed

Quitting any habit can be hard but those that may be added to a behavior or substance (or both) often realize that this is harmful to their life and have tried to stop smoking weed and have failed even though they may know it is for the best .

Lack of motivation

While many might just confuse this with a lack of direction many habitual marijuana smokers report having a sever lack of motivation to do anything that can be very harmful on relationships, work and more. This is usually found in long term users and may be linked to brain chemical changes over time that regulate mood.

Depression

Depression is a strange thing and some people can feel depressed when smoking weed or they become depressed after stopping their marijuana habit. Depression has also been linked to brain chemistry but also to environment as a result as well, this means there could have been a mixture of drug abuse and problems and issues that could cause this which often leads people to smoke more to get away from it. If smoking weed or quitting weed causes fluctuations in depressed symptoms something is wrong and could be linked to an addiction.

Anxiety

Much like depression anxiety and panic attacks can be found during or when stopping pot smoking. If you are trying to quit and suffer panic attacks or general anxiety this could have considered a sign of addiction if it drives you back to smoking.

Anger

As marijuana plays with your brain and alters your mood regulators some people find anger and rage an issue which drives them to smoke more which is a short term solutions to their anger problems which might be linked to marijuana or a separate issue that is covered up by excessive use making them addicted to the substance.

Relationship problems

Not only romantic relationships but friends, family bonds and so forth. If you find yourself having difficulty interacting with anyone who is not a pothead or you feel you are drifting further away from your loved ones due to marijuana but feel powerless to stop it you may have found more signs you have a pot addiction.

Shifting Priorities

Do you find yourself spending money on pot when you should be spending it on rent, food, tuition, health or anything else that is of prime importance to yourself? When smoking marijuana becomes something you sacrifice to do it is considered an addiction.

Any Excuse

Do you find you are making excuses to smoke more weed? Putting off invitations, skipping school or work or lying so you have more time to get high?

Defensiveness

Do you find yourself becoming aggressive when people confront you about smoking pot when they are not trying to defend you but are trying to help?

I NEED WEED!

Do you feel that you do not just want pot and want to get high but you feel NEED to smoke and without it your life will be poor, have no meaning or be too hard to deal with? Signs you have a pot addiction like this are the core part of a psychological addiction.
