    Hi There and thanks for your question. I'm not aware of any universal standard regarding how much marijuana is too much. What I see instead is a very subjective set of lines between self medicating, getting high, and being stoned. I believe that marijuana can effectively take the edge off symptoms of anxiety and ADHD and when used in moderation is helpful to a lot of people. The line between getting high and getting stoned is about how productive/aware one is while under the influence.

    My guess is that if you weren't comfortable with the amount you're using, you wouldn't be asking the question. Here's the hard part - be completely honest with yourself - get out of your head and go with your "gut feeling." Do you need to cut down/quit? How are you dealing with life and could they be better if you reduced your use? Only you can answer those questions. Good luck to you and here's hoping you decide to invest in a kick ass life.
