Bhubaneswar: Studies have linked marijuana use to a range of cardiovascular risks, including stroke, arrhythmia and diseases that make it hard for the heart muscle to pump properly, said the researchers.

“Marijuana use, both recreational and medical, is increasing nationally yet many of its cardiovascular effects remain poorly understood,” said lead author Ersilia M DeFilippis from Columbia University in the US.

“In our National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) query, we estimated that two million adults with marijuana use had the cardiovascular disease in 2015-2016. Since that time, additional states have passed legislature related to marijuana so its use may have increased even further,” DeFilippis added.
