Question from Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA:

I've had diabetes for about six years. I smoke marijuana daily. How does smoking marijuana affect my diabetes?

Answer:

Using marijuana with diabetes can be complicated. There are many issues to deal with, not the least of which is that marijuana is clearly a drug that leads to other drugs, which can have devastating effects on health and wellness.
