AB  - A 70-year-old man with known coronary artery disease presented with crushing
      chest pain, diaphoresis, and pallor after consuming a marijuana lollipop; the
      pain began within 30 minutes of consumption. His troponin T increased from 94
      ng/L to 216 ng/L, with slight ST changes but no gross ST elevations. Discharge
      diagnosis was non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction, and subsequent nuclear
      medicine wall motion studies showed worsening ejection fraction (40% to 31%). He 
      also described worsening functional status and exercise capacity after the event.
      The outcome of this case is important with new marijuana legalization-hopefully
      with marijuana use no longer criminalized, more research into the cardiovascular 
      side effects will emerge.
