Pounding heart, paranoia, memory loss after inhaling marijuana. Normal effect?

Hello, I was a regular marijuana smoker a few years back, and recently I decided to give it another go. But after I inhaled the smoke and sat down for a few minutes I got a bad case of a pounding heart , paranoia , and memory loss . At the same time I could also remember things about my past that never even registered. Am I in danger by continual smoking? or is this a normal affect?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. To answer your question - Yes you are in danger by continual smoking. Although marijuana has a lot of different symptoms in different people and at different stages and amounts of usage it is suggested that unless you are prescribed medical marijuana it is best to not use marijuana in any form. The symptoms that you describe may be attributed to the usage of marijuana. I also hope you consult with a psychiatrist as soon as possible to help in the detox process.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
