Suggest Treatment For Heart Disease In Children

My 17 yr-old niece and was born with a congenital heart defect. She had several surgeries during her first year of life, and her oxigenation is not as high as that of a person with a healthy heart. Now she is smoking marijuana on the weekends. I worry it could damage her heart and am trying to persuade her to stop. Is she more at risk for heart problems, and if so, what arguments could I use to convince her that smoking pot is harmful to her health?
