Does marijuana use have any interaction with general anesthesia? I use once a day and having VSG tomorrow.
Probably not: A check of various drug interaction registries shown no interaction with a commonly used general anesthetic gas.

Does medical marijuana, with high cannabidiol and low THC content, have negative interactions with lisinopril, hydrochlorothiazide, and a pacemaker that performs 87% of an elderly person's heart beat?

Electronic pacemaker initiated heart beats are always weaker because less well coordinated.
