Atrial fibrillation & marijuana use

  Is there any research on frequent marijuana use and atrial fibrillation.
  We would like to know any correlation.  It seems like marijuana only affects the lungs, however if it is a hazard to the heart beat, we'd like to know.  The person is 50 years old and is an otherwise healthy person.  Tahnk you.
  Thank you.
Dear Concerned
Current marijuana use can definitely cause or contribute to arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation. Marijuana is bad for the heart, as well as the lungs.
I hope this is useful. Good luck. Feel free to write back with further questions.
If you wish to be evaluated here at the Cleveland Clinic, please call 1-800-CCF-CARE for an appointment with a cardiologist at desk F15. Information provided in the Heart Forum is for general purposes only. Specific diagnoses and therapies can only be provided by your doctor.
