What could be the cause of recurring infectious boils all over the body on one addicted to marijuana ?

My son has been smoking marijuana for over 10 years. He has recurring infectious boils on different parts of his body. He has been to several doctors, dermatologist s etc. That prescribe antibiotics . Many say the boils are a result of a staph infection . I am beginning to wonder if the habitual pot use may be the problem. Please advise.
