I can’t laugh ,I can’t pay attention to things. I have trouble tracking conversation or deciding when to laugh at a joke. I feel like the world holds no magic.

    For a few days, maybe even a week or two..
    Thats about it…

    If you need reefer to see the magic in the world, then that is sad, and you may indeed have depression. You may want to talk to your doctor about medication and/or a referral for a counselor/therapist.

    Speaking from experience, quiting grass does not cause depression. However, grass is a fantastically effective treatment for depression. So chances are you were already depressed, and the grass was helping you cope.

    Yes, it can cause depression. Smoking the weed can also cause not only a loss of memory, but a complete deterioration of the mind. I saw this happen to a friend many years ago. He went bye-bye fast!

    You may have something here. The reality is that you may have been self-medicating with pot. You may have an underlying problem like depression, bi-polar or other medical problem. Check with a doctor. Tell the doctor the truth. Try a N/A meeting in your area. Share your story with others. Take care!

    you will find that when you stop using any mind altering drug that it will have an effect on you.. Please give it some time.. it will pass… Soon you will have your mind back.. and it will be better then being drugged out and sitting out life… Most people I know that smoked marijuana and did not quit are still dressing and acting like they did 20 years ago when they started.. I am serious.. your brain just does not function…stay clean and off marijuana and it will be better in the future.. just hang in there.. and good luck 🙂

    Certainly it can. When smoking weed we are able to see the lighter side of life, and don’t get too hung up in everybody else’s miserable state. When the euphoria disappears, adjusting to reality is depressing.
