Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. Although there is no evidence of marijuana dependence having any problems with Kawasaki heart disease, I believe that you need to consult an expert in this field, a doctor that is qualified in substance use disorders as well as in internal medicine. I wish you the very best in your recovery.

I hope this helps. Take care of yourself and have a lovely day!
