Does marijuana harm your vocal chords?

Additional Details
but WHY? i have never seen evidence that just because it's smoke, it harms your lungs, etc. i always thought it was what was IN the smoke itself.


smoking anything harms your vocal cords.

KY Physician
smoke is an irritant and harms any respiratory lining, including the vocal cords. To have a normal voice the two vocal cords must have a smooth edge to vibrate against each other. the irritation from smoke (of any kind) causes the lining of the vocal cord to swell and that will affect your voice.
