Do you believe that a child can inherit an addictive personality from their parents? Or do you think that this is a myth? The main reason I'm asking is because my friend's parents are taking her to a counselor right now to figure out whether her marijuana addiction is the result of her mother's prior issues with prescription drugs. They believe that it may be an inherited problem. I personally think she just smokes pot to rebel, but I may be wrong. What are your thoughts on this?
