Short-term memory loss continues 1-2 days after I smoke marijuana.

Sometimes when I smoke marijuana, my short-term memory remains nuked for 1-2 days after I smoke. This symptom doesn't seem to be correlated with the amount of marijuana smoked, and does not reliably happen when I smoke the same marijuana twice (i.e., it's not bad/different weed that causes it). It usually happens when I drink moderate amounts of alcohol in addition to smoking, but not always. Does this happen to other people? Is this harmful? Is it possible to counteract this effect? Does this mean I should completely stop smoking marijuana?

The short-term memory loss I experience is the same kind I get when I'm high, but on the days after, I don't have the "high" feeling. Only the short-term memory loss persists. There is a touch of paranoia as well, but that's probably just from the general sense of confusion I have.
