Psychiatric Side: Effect. 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. The danger is that for some the paranoia does not resolve. If it makes you paranoid- you shouldn't use it.
