I'm no expert, but I have a good friend who used to work closely with the DEA (retired). He's seen cases of people acting like they were on meth or LSD, when it was nothing but pot. Then there are people who can do the really hard stuff and act normal. There's no "rules" with the stuff, anymore than any other drug.
The only adverse psychological effects that I've ever seen experienced are panic attacks/anxiety in inexperienced users.

I know it affects everyone differently, I'm not na´ve or stupid, but I will never believe any of that "reefer madness" propaganda that the DEA/US government sold to my parents and grandparents.

When a study is cited that THC use can lead to psychosis, violent behavior or uncontrollable outbursts in users, I will retract my statement, but until then... I'll stick with my first-hand knowledge of it.
