NO IT IS DEFINITELY NOT OK!Any type of drug whether it be street or pharmacy should be discontinued 48 hours prior to any proceedure that includes the use of any type of anesthesia and or muscle relaxer such as versed and fentanyl. You can either have a very serious reaction because drugs are in your system for 48-72 hours after consumption, or they won't be able to give you enough medication to sedate you enough.I am having a colonoscopy in January and because I am on Percocet daily for pain (ruptured disks in back, fibromyalgia, ibs, and multiple sclerosis) they cannot give me the stuff they use to sedate. They have to completely put me under for my colonoscopy even if I discontinue the percocet in advance.So if you want to have a "safe" procedure then do not smoke pot before hand.
Love, hugs, and prayers
Live life to the fullest, while you can, because you never know when you won't be able to anymore.
