Male marijuana smokers could be setting themselves up for sexual dysfunction.

That's according to a just released study. The research includes a report that found erectile dysfunction twice as common in marijuana users.

Other research suggests a dose effect, meaning small amounts of the drug have little impact, while greater use causes more problems.

Researchers say more clinical studies are needed on marijuana's effect in both the short and long-term.
