Short term memory loss and numb legs after smoking pot. Reason?

I know that its not a good thing to smoke pot but i occasionally do. After i usually feel like im in a dream and have extreme short term memory loss and it feels like 5 minutes is 3 hours and its very scary and my legs feel numb for days upon days after. Why does this do this to me? Because none of my friends experience this. Is it something else wrong with me that the weed triggers?

Welcome to HCM

Smoking pot or weed or cannabis is very harmful to health. It is experimented by a lot of youngsters. It may cause toxic symptoms like precipitation of psychosis, delusional behavior, hallucinatory behavior. In some people it may cause change in perception of time. Memory loss of recent events may be seen. I would advise you to stop taking it again. It is a harmful thing. If symptoms persist then visit a Psychiatrist for expert opinion. Medicines like antipsychotics can be needed to control these symptoms.
