Quite questionable: Possible effects of marijuana: anxiety, depression, fear, panic , delusions, hallucinations, losing touch with reality, inattentiveness, short-term memory problems, disturbances of thought processes. Fatigue, poor concentration, slowed reaction times & slowed problem solving. Cannabis can trigger anxiety so i think it's use would be questionable in this case.
