It's not my fault! I'm addicted!
Edinho admitted that he is addicted to marijuana, but denied any envolvement in drug traffic or other criminal activities.
I absolutely love how as soon as someone claims to be "addicted" to something -- drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex -- then they are automatically absolved of any wrongdoing associated with their "addiction".
Now, I have no problems with drug use, as long as the drug use doesn't lead to anyone else's harm (e.g., crack-addicted moms neglecting their children), but I'm sorry, if you do something wrong, blaming your addiction does not clear you of responsibility. It's just another sad example of bullshit psychology. Not to mention that "marijuana addiction" is one of the biggest pieces of bullshit I've ever heard. The most I've ever heard claimed about pot is that it's "psychologically" addictive but not "physically" addictive, whatever the hell the difference is. I was one of the biggest pot smokers I knew back in the day, but when I stopped, it wasn't through rehab or detox, I just stopped.
