Abstract
Marijuana (pot, weed, hashish), a very renowned drug, used initially as a medicinal herb, now to ease pain and inflammation is abused worldwide. In the context of the easy availability, easy affordability, the popularity and the rising use of this recreational drug, we review a case where the use of marijuana caused elevated troponins that were alarming and interventional procedures were done to find out the cause, but when the catheterization failed to reveal any evidence of obstruction, marijuana-induced vasospasm was considered the possible culprit of the elevated troponins.
