Probably: Sounds like PCP. Keep it up and your next event may be your last.

MJ use: Most likely yes as what you are describing is not what one would expect from MJ use. What is not know, most likely and amphetamine (speed) or sometimes ecstasy (also in the amphetamine family) can cause this.

Most likely: Cannabis is usually, but not always, calming with a decreased heart rate. There has been a MASSIVE increase in marijuana that is laced with other drugs to keep customers hooked. PCP is one of the most common and this is a very dangerous drug, it can be lethal. Cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine are other common contaminants. Get help for your addiction, NA has been life saving for many people.
