Hello,

It seems to me that you have answered the question yourself. If the episodes occur when smoking marijuana then that is the most likely cause.

Smoking marijuana may manifest with many neurological symptoms, phenomena like numbness and tingling are common sensory alterations associated with smoking weed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
