  3. Repeated failed efforts to discontinue or reduce the amount of cannabis that is used
  4. An inordinate amount of time is occupied acquiring, using, or recovering from the effects of cannabis.
  5. Cravings or desires to use cannabis. This can include intrusive thoughts and images, and dreams about cannabis, or olfactory perceptions of the smell of cannabis, due to preoccupation with cannabis.
  6. Continued use of cannabis despite adverse consequences from its use, such as criminal charges, ultimatums of abandonment from spouse/partner/friends, and poor productivity.

  8. Cannabis is used in contexts that are potentially dangerous, such as operating a motor vehicle.
  9. Use of cannabis continues despite awareness of physical or psychological problems attributed to use- e.g., anergia, amotivation, chronic cough.
