I recently had a DVT in my leg, it ended up traveling to my lung, and now I have been prescribed Coumadin (aka Warfarin).

I am regular pot smoker and I was wondering if there could be any adverse effects if I smoke while on the drug?



PS. I did ask my doctor, but he wouldn't give me a definitive answer, he more or less just gave me that 'all smoking is bad' lecture.
