Do inform your anaesthetist about this.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to healthcare magic. I am Dr Ramadevi Wani. I will be answering your concerns today.

Smoking Weed may sometimes cause hyperactivity
of the airway resulting in difficult intubation. You may also need a different dose of sedation. There may be slightly increased bleeding during the procedure. Therefore do discuss this with your anaesthetist before the procedure.
If you are an occasional smoker, generally there should be no problem.
I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes,
Dr Rama
