Unsuspected side effects of marijuana use

Here in Colorado, the promotion of marijuana as a panacea has been incessant.  If one is to believe the propaganda, you would think it cures everything.  Beside the fact that tranquilizing over the top of symptoms is not a cure for anything, a recent article in Medical News Today shows possible cardiac side effects from marijuana use.  I have linked both the article and a representative echo (heart ultrasound) which shows a poorly contracting ventricle similar to the issue being describe in the article.
