Cannabis use is an emerging remedy among immunocompromised patients. The lack of regulation surrounding marijuana treatment creates a culture of concern for patients. The act of inhalation further inhibits these patients’ immune response to pathogens. Additionally, marijuana cultures are heavily contaminated with Aspergillus fungus. This review assesses the evidence for a correlation between cannabis use in the immunocompromised and cases of pulmonary aspergillus.
