Question: What Is The Relationship Between Marijuana And Heart Disease?
Answer: The most common type of damaging smoking to the heart is smoking cigarettes. And we're frequently asked about marijuana -- whether that may have also damaging effects -- and, in fact, it does. Smoking marijuana is approximately as damaging to the heart as is smoking cigarettes. So just like we would like you to avoid smoking cigarettes as an essential way to reduce your risk of having coronary artery disease, we also want you to avoid smoking marijuana.
