marijuana causing heart problems

i am a 16 year old male who has been smoking marijuana for almost a year now. ive never had any problems before but the last two times i had strange symptoms. both times within ten minutes i felt a popping sensation in my chest followed by wut felt like hot liquid dripping down. after that i felt extreme chest pain in my left chest area along with my left arm and the left side of my face going numb. do u know what could have caused this reaction?

It is unlikely cardiac--start exercising and don't smoke anything.
