If I have fever symptoms that are improving and smoke marijuana, will they get worse after or will the marijuana have no effect?

In brief: Marijuana and fever
There is good evidence that marijuana suppresses the immune system to some degree.
So, if your fever is due to an infection, the marijuana will make it harder for your body's immune system to fight the infection. My suggestion is to avoid marijuana use until you are back to normal.
