Is it possible for chorea, or some other type of involuntary jerky movements, to be caused by cannabis use? I ask this because I found that a few people who use marijuana get involuntary muscle spasms, only while they are high. Can this be related to stimulated dopamine receptors?? (I have no idea what I'm talking about!)
