A mixed group of psychiatric out-patient's and normal controls were surveyed to determine the frequency of marijuana-related anxiety attacks. Results suggest marijuana may provoke anxiety attacks and that patient's may be particularly susceptible to this effect. Of special interest is the association between marijuana and a patient's first, or 'herald' panic attack, suggesting marijuana-related anxiety may promote the onset of panic disorder in all normals and those predisposed to pathological anxiety.
