Will tetrahydrocannabinol react with general anesthesia?

Hi there. I am getting my tonsils out tomorrow, and I smoke weed once a day or more. Will I be okay with the general anesthesia they re giving me? Will the THC affect it at all?

It is better to refrain from taking weeds before the surgery as it will have undue side-effects on you when anesthesia is given as you might require more anesthetic gases to be given. More anesthetic gases means more side effects.
