“To be diagnosed with the disorder, individuals must meet at least two of 11 symptoms that assess craving, withdrawal, lack of control, and negative effects on personal and professional responsibilities.”

Is that anything like “Cheeseburger use disorder”, or “Coffee use disorder”?  I “crave” a good cup of coffee, get a headache from withdrawal, and it produces jitters if I drink too much of it.  Does that mean I have “coffee use disorder”?  These clowns are trying to make a mountain out of a molehill.  Moreover, the rarity of this “disorder” further undermines their sensationalism.  Out of dozens (formerly hundreds) of cannabis users, I know of NONE that have this “disorder”.  Do you?
