Let us, first, finely break down some frosty nuggets..light some incense..look through the dabblers rabbling babble..
Yes, by definition, the psychoactive cannabinoid THC** and, furthermore, the physical act of smoking, may form a habit and be abused.
The brain’s reward system is activated and releases a considerable dose of dopamine i.e., the stuff that makes you feel good. Here are some, other, things – with a dump of dopamine – we do, make habitual and abuse:

THC’s replacing of our neurotransmitter, Anandamide, by binding to cannabinoid (CB) receptors, skews and may cause permanent changes** in the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS, associated with emotion and memory). This affects the brain’s Hippocampus and may, also, change its chemistry.**
That is why adolescent consumption – when important brain connections are, still, rapidly developing – is an issue and, a twenty-one-year age limit remains a good idea.
It is, indeed, amazing how our everyday (among the items listed above) affects brain chemistry. Normal things – facts of life – like a negative thought or memory, emotional and physical trauma, medical conditions and disorders.
Cannabis is a Schedule I drug, only, because agencies involved do not have direct control over the plant’s properties and chemicals. For example: condensed THC (Dronabinol) is Schedule III, available in market, while CBD** hemp oil was recently Scheduled I.
The therapeutic qualities of THC and CBD are beyond doubt. CBD may even counteract THC’s psychoactive property. And through different application methods (topical oils, extracts, edibles, tinctures, etc) we, people, can control cannabis. It is medicine.
