Study: Marijuana Not Associated With Risk of Stroke
Most doctors will tell you: Heavy alcohol use is bad, and heavy tobacco use is even worse.
If you smoke a considerable amount of cigarettes, your risk for a bevy of health issues, including heart disease, cancer and stroke, is considerably increased.
But marijuana? Hardly a concern at all—at least when it comes to stroke.
According to a study involving almost 50,000 people in Sweden, published in the journal of the American Heart Association, marijuana use is not associated with any additional risk of stroke.
“We found no evident association between cannabis use in young adulthood and stroke, including strokes before 45 years of age,” study authors wrote in their conclusion, published last week.

Medical Marijuana Reclassified Under International Law?
Medical marijuana could receive a much-needed reclassification under international law before 2018.
The World Health Organization’s Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD), which has played in integral role throughout the years in how marijuana is revered in the eyes of the United Nations, has decided to give some consideration to whether “medical marijuana” should be downgraded from its current classification under the UN Single Convention.
The organization revealed plans last month to hold a special session within the next year and a half to debate this issue, according to a report from Americans for Safe Access (ASA).
