Tobacco Effects

Our group is working on the nature of the interaction between cannabis and tobacco. We use biomarkers to determine the concordance of usage of the two products in adolescents, and are conducting a laboratory study on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of vaped cannabis vs vaped tobacco vs vaped cannabis + tobacco.  I am also interested the cardiovascular effects of cannabis use in people with heart disease.
