Weed does however cause paranoia issues, which can easily spiral due to it being a dependence drug to make people feel better.

I reckon that Medical Marijuana, in the form of pills, at a low dosage, should be legal. However there should be plenty of restrictions on it to stop recreational use and false prescriptions.
Weed causes paranoia among some users of it because it's illegal, and your conscience knows it. The only paranoia that stems from simply using weed is the paranoia of being caught by the cops. Unless you're paranoid in general, you typically don't experience any paranoia past that.
