A new study investigating the link between cannabis use and heart attacks found that adults younger than 45 years were twice as likely to have a heart attack.

Doctor Karim Ladha, a clinician scientist at Unity Health Toronto, said: “With recent legalisation and decriminalisation, cannabis use is increasing in young adults in North America, and we do not fully know its effect on cardiovascular health.

“We found an association between recent cannabis use and myocardial infarction, which persisted across an array of robust sensitivity analyses.

“Additionally, this association was consistent across different forms of cannabis consumption, including smoking, vaporisation, and other methods such as edibles.
