    I tried marijuana like 5 or six times in my whole life. Last week i smoked a whole joint. I was completely high and was suffering from dehydration. After 3 hours I was feeling normal. But still my mouth was too dry and I was suffering from dizziness. It's day 8 and still I can't breathe properly and also I'm feeling very dizzy. I went to see a doctor and he gave me some tests like. Blood test and lungs x ray. But my reports were all normal. Please give me some advice.

    Smoking cannabis can result in some of the symptoms you are describing, but not for very long after smoking just one joint. You may be experiencing an anxiety reaction.

    If these symptoms persist, seeing your doctor again may be the prudent thing to do.
