    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Marijuana has been known to cause anxiety and paranoia. Yep, this is most likely the reason you are dealing with those symptoms.

    The best thing you can do it talk yourself out of feeling "crazy". Tell yourself you're not going crazy and that you will be okay.

    If you keep having issues, you should talk with a psychologist (or someone similar). Avoid other drugs and alcohol to "ease" these feelings. You would probably benefit from finding a task (exercise) or hobby to take your mind off of the random thoughts, as well as finding things to calm you.

    (Some people do meditation, yoga, stretching, etc. Not just in the moment, but as a regular thing, to keep yourself regularly calmer. It is more beneficial than most people realize.)
