recently had heart attack and am an occasional marijuana user and want to know if my use has contributed to my recent attack. can my use weaken or damage my heart?
The only bad effect you get from smoking (which means not vaporizing or eating) is cigarette-like lung damage/problems for cronic usage
Now, if you had the attack while on marijuana it may be a suspect since your heart rate can increase 20–100 percent shortly after smoking; and this effect can last up to 3 hours.
it depends on how often u used the drug. different people have long term effects. in this one study i read resulted in people using marijuana as little as once a week have a very increased risk of lung cancer and heart problems. a few other things may have contributed to your recent heart attack. hope you get beter and think twice about what you put into your body
