A 24-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I feel like there's a lump in my throat when I lay down. Like a very minimal choking feeling. I didn't smoke weed for the first time today in 2 weeks.

Could be your uvula: Smoking marijuana can cause swelling of the uvula which can give you the choking sensation.
