I've actually read about this a lot, I can't for the life of me remember the technical term, but it has to do with your brain thinking it's asleep.

The marijuana can in intense situations relax you to the point of being asleep, which causes R.E.M. and sometimes this can even occur at the optic nerve. So when someone else wouldn't be able to notice, your eyes are shutting on and off every .25 seconds.
