probably not.  however, there is emerging data that shows that hepatic fibrosis can increase with regular cannabis use so regular use of marijuana should be frowned upon.  also, in patients with cirrhosis who may need a liver transplant, many programs mandate that patients not use cannabis prior to entry onto the waiting list.
