Thank you for posting your query.

The hyperintense area in the frontal lobe is most likely due to an ischemic lesion (lack of blood flow in the brain).

Various underlying causes may be responsible such as high sugar, BP, cholestrol, etc. However, it may be a good idea to stop smoking weed.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
