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?
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.
