Pot and seizures
I am a 60 year old female and after smoking pot I had two seizures. Never had that happen before but have passed  out twice from pot in the past. I felt totally fine afterwards. Needless to say I will never smoke again! My question is do I need to get checked by a doctor? I don't really want to get that info. on my medical records or should I just say I had a seizure.

If I were you I would still go to the doctor and just let them know.  As a sister-in-law of someone who had a seizure for the very same reason.  It turned out he did have a problem.  Good luck and keep us updated.

Could you tell me what kind of problem? I have no medical insurance so wonder who to even go to.
Thank you so much for answering this!

It turned out he was an epileptic.  I would call around and see if you can find a place that can either come up with a pay plan or help you out.  You may even qualify for disability if you get an official diagnoses.
