Is it safe to smoke weed after a heart attack?

Timing: It isn't safe to smoke anything during the healing phase (1st 3 months) of a heart attack since it raises carbon monoxide levels. In the long run, the risk is probably low, but frankly, i've never seen a scientific paper and doubt that it's ever been studied.
