'may trigger a heart attack': Risk increases FIVE-fold in the hour after drug
could trigger a heart attack, according to a new report
increases by 4.8 times in the first hour after smoking
- A healthy
21-year-old man had a heart attack after smoking cannabis
said the drug was to blame, and pointed to other similar cases
By Madlen Davies
cannabis can have a devastating effect on the heart, new research has warned.
Doctors say the risk increases by almost five times in the first hour
after the drug is smoked. They cite the
case of a 21-year-old man who had a heart attack after smoking cannabis - and
say the drug was to blame. The report,
published in the Journal of Emergency Medicine, described the man as a regular
marijuana and cigarette smoker.
He arrived at
the emergency department at the University Hospital Wales in Cardiff
complaining of a sharp pain on the left side of his chest that lasted for half
an hour. He said the pain started after
he played a game of football. A month
before, doctors at the same hospital had diagnosed him with muscle pain after
he went to the emergency department complaining of the same symptoms after
playing football. But this time, tests
showed his triglyceride and cholesterol levels Ė fats in the blood - were much
higher than normal. He was rushed to the
nearest cardiology centre, where an X-ray of his coronary arteries revealed a
blood clot blocking the heartís blood supply, which resulted in a heart attack.

EMPOWER Coalition of the Southern Hills (ECOSH) is a rapidly growing community prevention coalition. Over the past two years we
have grown into a broad-based, grassroots coalition and are expanding our prevention efforts thoughout the Southern Hills.
Every community, no matter where it is located, has its own specific set of issues and problems and we are no different. The nature of the problems vary from place to place, such as one community may be thriving economically versus another that desperately needs low-income housing. While the issues may change, the need to deal with them remains the same. ECOSH was founded to unite community strengths/resources and bring together to solve community problems.
