Is it safe to smoke weed after a heart attack?

??? You got to be kidding! you are inviting the next heart attack which could potentially kill you.
Timing. It isn't safe to smoke anything during the healing phase (1st 3 months) of a heart attack since it raises carbon monoxide levels. In the long run, the risk is probably low, but frankly, i've never seen a scientific paper and doubt that it's ever been studied.
