1 doctor agrees
In brief: YES!
Adding ganja or any other substance to a person recovering from a brain injury is problematic.
The person could be more prone to sedation, confusion, disorientation, disorganized thinking, and misperceptions including hallucinations. It's also hard to know all the adulterations a given supply of ganja might contain -- including possible pesticides, for which no one is testing. Not healthy.
