Thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone through your history .

Marijuana may worsen your bipolar mood disorder .
It is also called the gateway of other drugs so there are chance that you may get addicted to other drugs also .

So it is always advisable to avoid it.
I hope i have addressed your concern .
