Hi, a bad memory i have, it all happened after i used marajuana,, i was taken to hospital,, must like like 10 yrs ago already, kind of overdose, but i was silly, i did it again a few months later due to peer pressure, and ever since then i have felt out of it... my memory is getting to the stage where im forgetting everything,, ive been to doctors in the past and they think theres nothing wrong with me and they say that if i dont use marajuana now then its out of my system, but the thing was ,, it caused some kind of damage,, and im so afraid its turning into like dementia or something? i can feel myself slowing down alot.... any solutions for me?

thanks alot

  • anyone else experiencing serious memory impairment from marajuana? it just gets worse over time,, even tho not being used..You know, I'm a legally prescribed-to long-term medical marijuana user and don't particularly suffer from any sort of memory impairment, even though I have access to high grade marijuana and smoke copious quantities. I excel at school & work. I study Geology, which means I have to take a lot of physics, chemistry and calculus classes. Many of my associates also use marijuana, both medically and recreationally and don't suffer from any obvious impairment.If marijuana is indeed the cause of your malady, there are a few things that you might consider: 1. Perhaps you are allergic to marijuana. 2. Perhaps you have smoked moldy marijuana that was cured improperly. Marijuana is susceptible to a couple of neurotoxic mold growths which can cross the blood-brain barrier and cause severe impairment, much like meningoencephalitis.
