Should I tell my doctor I smoke cannabis?

Question: I’m getting to the age where I’m periodically having medical “procedures,” and on the various forms that have to be completed they always ask if you  “smoke.” Just the generic question. In years past I always assumed they were asking about tobacco usage. Now that cannabis is becoming widely used, how do the medical professionals want us to answer the question? Do we need to disclose that we smoke cannabis when procedures may include sedation? FWIW I normally abstain from smoking 36-48 hours prior to any procedures.
