Lil Scrappy

In Rehab

For Marijuana Addiction

EXCLUSIVE

1114_lil_scrappy_gettyLil Scrappy is desperate to kick his lil marijuana-loving ways, and to avoid jail -- the rapper officially checked into rehab for ganja addiction ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Scrappy failed a court-ordered drug test recently, when his urine test came back positive for weed. Afterward, Scrappy claimed he was addicted to the sticky icky and wanted to get help.

Now, his lawyer tells TMZ ... Scrappy voluntarily entered a rehab facility in the Atlanta area Thursday night and will remain there at least until his next hearing on June 16 -- when he's hoping the judge will show him leniency.

We're told the place is no walk in the park -- 6:30AM wake-up, 10PM curfew, group therapy, one-on-one therapy, NO cell phone or laptop ... and NO visitors for the first 2 weeks.

Side note for Scrappy: group therapy can be a bitch ...

HAHA! Marijuana Addiction
NO SUCH THING!
You might feel irritable for a couple days and have a loss of appetite. That's all...

Quieting cigarettes feels 20 times worse.

Marijuana is so safe that you can't even die from it.

IMO    

Testing for marijuana...how lame. America and the world benefits from and experiences an increase of good life-moments from the creative output of marijuana users: musicians, writers, actors from theater and film/TV etc and to spend so much time and money on weed smokers is a waste, particularly when it's alcohol that gives rise to car accidents and deaths, physical altercations, accidental deaths on the job, depression, DUIs, domestic violence, sexual assault and abuse etc. It's a joke. Sexual predators stalking little girls and boys get more slack and lax treatment from authorities the weed smokers. Weed makes people think and that's why gov'ts hate it.. Cigarettes, alcohol and pills are what kill people. If the weed heads aren't committing crimes then leave them be. Look at dumb Lindsay Lohan. Plus, this kid is only pausing his smoking to remain out of jail. The "rehab" is just to decorate his public desire to avoid going to jail.

Lil Scrappy entered rehab so he wouldn't do time. Marijuana is not addictive. That's a brain problem not a chemical problem.

That rehab facility is ripping him off. They may change his behavior or thinking but there is not 'addiction' treatment for marijuana. Good luck with that, Scrappy Doo
