Have ventricula septic defect. Affected by weed smoke?

I have a friend who was born with a left ventricula septic defect 24 years agos. Due to this he has many difficultys. Someone in his household has started to smoke weed around 3 to 4 times a day and I am scared the smoke is affecting him. Although it is not in the same room it is next door and it passes through easy will this be affecting him and if so in what ways?
