Blood in stool, smoked marijuana. Why i have blood in feces?

Good morning, I am a 16 year old male, 150 pounds, 5 11 and since this past friday, Febuary 22, 2013, I have had blood in my stool 2 out of three times that I have gone to the restroom. I smoked marijuana for the first time friday evening with my friends. I took 3 hits, each time holding it in my lungs for approx. 4 secs, then releasing it. I also smoked 2 cigarettes, them also being the first I have ever smoked. I am very concerned about why I have blood in my feces, and I would really like to get this problem solved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Passing blood in feces is a problem which should be taken seriously. There can be a wide variety of causes for this and you need a physical examination and further investigations to make a diagnosis.

Smoking cigarettes and marijuana can have a lot of adverse health consequences, including gastritis and even gastro-intertinal bleeding. I would advise you to refrain from these habits and see a doctor for a detailed evaluation of your problem, so that further treatment can be planned.

Wish you all the best.
