[QUOTE="jdc6305"]You probably were paranoid because you were doing something illegal.
I started smoking weed when I was 14 I quit when I was 21. Everytime I smoke I get super paranoid. I was a heavy smoker I smoked 10 or more joints a day for years. I ended up in a psychosis from heavy use. I've gained a new appreciation for reality. I not one for telling other people what they can or can't do. Personally I hate drug addicts.
Ignorance is bliss. No it also caused myself to suffer from severe anxiety for a period. Like **** and Alcohol it has negative side effects and does effect the brain. I believe this can be more severe in some people than others i also believe the effects mostly go by unknown by the user and then bang suddenly you have a major issue. Would be coolo if the laws in the UK in my case were relaxed but people just do things in excess no matter what! Legal or illegal! Generally it would be better legailised just no smoking in Public and some kind of control on the amount a user can have per month!
