Time to get clean: Those are symptoms of withdrawal, and indicated that your body is becoming dependent on the drug. Please seek help through your primary care provider and a drug treatment program.

See your doctor: If marijuana has taken over your life, and is causing many serious symptoms and problems, and yet you are continuing to use it, then you have a problem and need help. If you are unable to cut back or stop on your own, help is available. Your primary care doctor can give you advice about resources available in your area. For some younger people, AA/NA or Alateen may be helpful, others need more.
