Is smoking Marijuana safe after heart transposition?

I was born with a heart defect I had heart transposition of the great arteries as a new born. And when I was 4 my pulmonary artery was thin and narrow so they added cow valve to my arteries to stretch them. So the valve doesn t grow with me as I get older so I got a few balloonings. 3 months ago I had a stent placed in my pulmonary artery. Is it safe to smoke marijuana with this condition I have?
