The Pill x Pot

So I'm taking the birth control pill for the first time, and my doctor mentioned not to smoke while on it because of the risk of blood clots. I know when talking about smoking it's mostly directed towards cigarettes, but I'm genuinely wondering if pot is the same in terms of that risk? I don't smoke regularly by any means but I guess my question is am I going to die if I smoke (weed) every once in a while?
