Stærke kræfter arbejder på at liberalisere rushmidlet cannabis, selv om det er velkendt, at stoffet bl.a. er psykose-fremkaldende. Nu kædes rusmidlet også sammen med hjerte-kar sygdomme. Britiske Daily Mail om en ung og ellers rask og sund mand, der pludseligt fik et hjerteanfald:
Doctors said cannabis use was the most significant cause of the ‘acute coronary syndrome’ he suffered.
This is the medical term for the symptoms which occur when the coronary artery is blocked.
The man had no other risk factors for cardiovascular problems, and although he had used cocaine four months previously, this was judged to be too long ago to have caused it.
Doctors said it is not known how smoking marijuana can cause a heart attack, but that it is known to affect blood flow, increase heart rate, cause high blood pressure when sitting down and low pressure when standing up.
The report backs up previous research which found that smoking marijuana can trigger heart attacks in the young and middle-aged.
