Mother Nature: sounds like your body is giving you cues. I'd stop altogether if I were you. So many health benefits to not smoking weed.

Quit: Sudden loss of consciousness, altered mental status, or sudden onset lack of coordination are signs of a stroke. The term "mini stroke" is often used to describe such symptoms when they are transient. However, these episodes are still red flags that a major stroke will follow. If using marijuana contributes to irregular heart rhythm and stroke, then it is reasonable to quit.
