Combining marijuana with diabetes drugs or insulin can be dangerous since it can mess with blood glucose levels. If a person is prescribed marijuana for medical uses, it is important that they talk to their doctor so he can adjust the doses accordingly. Reported side effects of medical marijuana include bloodshot eyes, depression, dizziness, fast heartbeat, hallucinations and low blood pressure.
