Young people who smoke weed may be putting themselves at risk for heart disease.

That's the finding of a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Researchers say from 2006 to 20-10 they found 35 reports of patients who experienced heart complications after using marijuana.

They also found that all but one of these patients were under the age of 50.

The Chief of Cardiology at Georgetown University says these findings don't show the level of risk, but indicate a link between weed and heart disease.
