There have been two reported cases of ABPA associated with mouldy marijuana.”7,8 Given the frequency of asthma and ABPA, and the high frequency of marijuana usage amongst young people, these cases may represent a tiny proportion of those affected. This year, CPA was associated with marijuana smoking for the first time9 and we report here 2 additional cases. The previously reported patient died at just 34 years of age and patient 2 at 46 years of age. These high mortality rates of CPA have been described previously.10–12” (cited from Too Many Mouldy Joints – Marijuana and Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis) (Mediterr J Hematol Infect Dis. 2011; 3(1): e2011005.Published online 2011 Jan 14. doi: 10.4084/MJHID.2011.005)
