Would Smoking Weed Affect The INR Levels While On Warfarin?

Hello, I’m a 23 year old Male and just had a metallic valve put in me, I’m currently on warfarin and have given up alcohol completely due to it not reacting well with the warfarin, I used to smoke weed a bit before my operation, would it be safe to smoke weed or would this affect my INR?

Many Thanks
