How to cure a person with acute paranoia possibly cause by marijuana ?

We don't "cure" it: for the most part. It usually goes away as the high dissipates, and marijuana rarely, if ever, "causes" a psychotic reaction that does not go away. However, there are people with underlying predispositions to psychotic disorders (family history, traumatic events and others) where the use of marijuana may precipitate a psychotic reaction, including paranoia, that does NOT resolve and requires meds. ...Read more
