You’ve probably heard a lot about how dangerous marijuana use can be for the teenage brain. But a recent statement from the American Heart Association is ringing the alarm about the drug’s effect on the heart.
“The American Heart Association recommends that people not smoke or vape any substance, including cannabis products, because of the potential harm to the heart, lungs and blood vessels,” Dr. Rose Marie Robertson, who serves as the deputy chief science and medical officer for the American Heart Association, said in a statement.
According to the statement, using marijuana could potentially interfere with prescription meds, and also trigger heart attacks or strokes.
