Hey everyone, I’ve got a friend whos been smoking weed for quite a while and passed the usual paranoia phase ages ago. But recently (maybe the last 5 or so times hes smoked) hes been thinking that people have been saying some really offensive stuff to him and that hes been doing really crazy stuff!! Infact, apart from that paranoia, hes the most mellow guy I know when he smokes weed and me being one of the people he thinks is hassling him, i can assure you that he isn’t getting hassled either.
Do you guys think that this is just some kind of phase, or a latent social disorder or what?
Thanks in advance.

I’m not a PHD in drugs or anything, but i know mad people who had smoked weed, and never been paranoid in thier lives. Certain people if on some medications can become paranoid around others or in general. Also, if someone is used to smoking quality KB then smokes Commercial, then the effects could be more paranoia. If something did happen one time when blazed, a similar sourrounding could also spark those thoughts causing the paranoia to rise up again. I have seen that happen. Hope that helps somewhat.

increased paranoia is one of the effects of thc. when you combine that with some misinterpreted comments things can get pretty jumpy.

In my drug experience (and believe me, I’ve had more than my share) I’ve come to the conclusion that the paranoia only increases. It’s both an effect of environment (which tends to get increasingly worse the more one does drugs) and a psychotropic phenomenon induced by the continuation of surrealism.
Basically, if the guy is starting to wig, he should cut back his intake. Seriously.
