One should refrain from using so that no elements of the drug are left in the body to cause complications. Even though Marijuana can be detected in urine or blood for up to a month after use, this is only because a remnant is stored in the fat cells. Active elements of the drugs are usually gone within a few days.

Smoking "anything" --- and that certainly includes marijuana, slows down (in some cases, dramatically) the healing process because of the tar and nicotine (and who knows what in marijuana). Also, the inhalation of any "smoking" puts pressure on the socket, further slowing down the healing process. Keep away from smoking for at least 5 to 7 days after surgery.
