Q: Is smoking weed bad for my stomach ulcer?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Yes, smoking weed causes gastritis, which further increases the chances of ulcer perforation.
So, please avoid it. Even one instance of smoking can cause a lot of harm.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
