Ever since signatures were being collected and the proposal was introduced to get on the ballot, there was very little addressed by supporters of marijuana legalization concerning the negatives of use.  It's only "natural" that mostly the benefits would be discussed.  One of the obvious downsides is the lack of education when it comes to edibles.  Many users are, in fact, using too much which greatly impairs one's ability to function in almost every way.  And now a new concern has been found that endangers young adults.

A new CNN report from the American Heart Association found on wnem.com, reveals that younger people with cannabis use disorder are at an increased risk of heart rhythm problems.  A second presentation says that young people who use weed frequently are at a higher risk for stroke.  The report states:

"The risk of cannabis use linked to arrhythmia in young people is a major concern, and physicians should ask patients hospitalized with arrhythmias about their use of cannabis and other substances because they could be triggering their arrhythmias."

In the other presentation, researches noted that young people who use cannabis more than 10 days a month were nearly 2.5 times more likely to have a stroke, compared to people who didn't use the drug.
