Cannabis – which is the most widely-used illegal drug in Britain – tends to leave users feeling chilled out and relaxed.

Dr Victor Chow, of the University of British Columbia in Canada, said: ‘The weight of the ¬≠evidence is that marijuana ¬≠probably has a negative impact not only for sperm counts but sperm function.’

Previous studies have shown that marijuana can affect fertility by cutting sperm count and suppressing ovulation in women.

The exact way in which that happens has not yet been made clear but the new research appears to shed more light.

The drug can increase the heart rate and affect blood pressure – while increasing the risk of a pregnant woman’s baby being born smaller than expected.
