Inhaled marijuana MAY cause bronchial irritation and trigger an asthmatic attack. If it hasn’t thus far, it hasn’t and therefore is less likely to do so in the future.

It is a bad idea to smoke weed, even worse if you have asthma. Weed will injure your lungs and more importantly harm your brain. Weed users are called stoners for good reason. Avoid tobacco, weed, alcohol or any street drugs. Wish you good health!
