American Journal of Public Health Logo

“To investigate the effects of marijuana in the development of incident cardiovascular and cerebrovascular outcomes.

Compared with no marijuana use, cumulative lifetime and recent marijuana use showed no association with incident CVD, stroke or transient ischemic attacks, coronary heart disease, or CVD mortality.

Marijuana use was not associated with CVD when stratified by age, gender, race, or family history of CVD.

Neither cumulative lifetime nor recent use of marijuana is associated with the incidence of CVD in middle age.”
