A 19-year-old member asked:

I smoked weed last night and felt my heart race and chest/left arm pain, but i played it off as normal since i know that can happen with the anxiety after smoking, but the next morning the pain was still there. any need for concern or is this normal?

Not Normal: I would suggest further smoking would be a very poor idea. Your body is giving you a clear message
