In brief: Bad idea

Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy and bad for patients.
There is rarely a need for smoking marijuana, but some people want to and like to smoke pot. However, if one's doctor has prescribed weed as a medical treatment, the risks and benefits will have to be compared.
