I have smoked it a couple of times before and don't anymore for that very reason, it made me feel paranoid. But all drugs can do that in one form or another, best just to say no

Yes, marijuana can cause paranoia. It may not cause it every time, or with every person, but there is always a chance. Now, the thing is, with different people growing it and dealing it, you always risk the chance of having things added to it- you will never truly know what is in it unless you grow it yourself. When things are added to it, it will increase your chances of getting paranoid. I have known people who have gotten paranoid every time they smoked it, and I personally have smoked it before and only gotten paranoid once. Really, it depends on how your body reacts to the drug. Think of it like this- some people can down half a bottle of liquor before they get drunk to the point when they know they are drunk, but some people only need a couple of shots before they are set for the night. Also, if you ever plan on smoking it, make sure you get it from a reliable source- some things that can be added to marijuana can really mess you up.

I hope this is helpful, and good luck to you!

Like any illegal drug, simply possessing it and using it, knowing there is a chance you will get busted is enough to cause paranoia in many people.

Additionally, teenagers driving with a six-pack of beer on their breath can experience similar feelings of paranoia.

Every drug affects different people differently. In most cases, it's just not worth trying it simply to find out.
