Smoking Marijuana Before Intravenous Sedation
Unknown: If you are being treated for thyroid cancer, i would not suggest using marijuana, since it does have some effects of suppressing immunity.

If you are being treated for hyperthryoidism or grave's disease, i don't think it is a problem. ...Read more

NO: You definitely do not want to smoke pot before getting wisdom teeth removed.

NO, however...: Smoking cigarettes increases risk of blood clots as does taking Nexplanon & those who use Nexplanon while smoking have unacceptable risks of blood clots.
