welcome to HealthcareMagic
If at age of 23 yrs you are on dialysis 12 times a month then your kidney functions are really bad and in such a condition you should not even think of smoking weed forget smoking it because it will make your condition worse.Secondly dialysis is being done to clean the blood and reduce the creatinine so it will clean the weed in blood but the effect on kidney will still be there and it may damage them more.So please avoid the thought as well as the use of the weed.
