In brief: Talk to doctor

Medical marijuana is still controversial though legal in some states: https://en.

In brief: YES, avoid!

there is increasing scientific evidence demonstrating that marijuana increases risk of stroke itself (in this case you would be at risk of recurrent stroke), in addition to other negative neurological and cognitive problems.
