Pot use may increase heart issues in young and middle-aged adults


A French study reported in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that marijuana use among young and middle-aged adults may result in cardiovascular-related complications and death.

“In prior research, we identified several remarkable cases of cardiovascular complications as the reasons for hospital admission of young marijuana users,” said Émilie Jouanjus, Pharm.D., Ph.D., lead author of the study and a medical faculty member at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Toulouse in Toulouse, France.  “This unexpected finding deserved to be further analyzed, especially given that the medicinal use of marijuana has become more prevalent and some governments are legalizing its use.”
