In many U.S. states, smoking marijuana is legal and increasingly popular, but this may be a bad idea in the COVID-19 crisis.

Smoking marijuana or tobacco causes inflammation in the lungs, making it easier for the virus to gain a hold. Also a new dry cough may be due to early infection from COVID-19 rather than marijuana – putting you at risk of infecting others.
