Study: Marijuana users have higher levels of metals in blood and urine

Marijuana users have higher levels of lead and cadmium in their blood and urine than people who don't use the drug.

This discovery was made during a study published this Wednesday in the journal "Environmental Health Perspectives".

CNN reports that the study used data between 2005 and 2018 collected from the annual National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which tracks the health of Americans.

Blood and urine tests of 7,254 people who admitted to using marijuana in the past 30 days were examined for heavy metal levels.

The study found that marijuana users had 22% higher levels of cadmium in their blood than non-users and 18% higher levels in their urine.

Regarding iron, marijuana users had 27% higher levels in the blood and 21% higher levels in the urine.

However, the US Environmental Protection Agency states that there is no safe level of lead in the body./ CNA
