Dermatologist 's  Response
Rash due to smoking weeds is very rare. you have described the rash as red bumps. I want to know the duration ie when it resolved? If it is resolving in hours then it can be a urticaria. mostly caused by some food or external environment. Antihistamines like cetrizine will be of great help.
