Mr.J
Does weed affect your lungs and throat the same as cigs?
                      









yungurban
no...its not as harmful as cigs


chaotic caryn
no it doesnt.

weed is a plant, plants are 100% natural. Cigarettes however, have many other substances in it which makes it clog up the lungs.


Scot B
no cigarettes contain many more hazardous chemical additives unless you roll your own tobacco

I would disagree with the first answer, a little.

Yes it does. More? I'm not sure if their is studies supporting this, because filtered or not, smoke is entering your throat and lungs. I suppose it all depends on how much you smoke.

Listen, smoke weed on the weekends if you have to... do good in school, and save the weed for Friday night.

yes and no. it does act as an irratant and will cause similar changes, but not as quickly as cigarrettes as they are higher in other chemical irritants too.


Ŗŷǜữ
Well obviously, they have tar in, and no filters.


caramarsh69
Cannabis is more healthy than cig's..
cig's contain rat poison and tar and all that stuff..
but it still effects in the same way as cigarettes
Weed is sick stuff though =P


tweetybird37406
of course...you are introducing smoke into your body, so of course it's going to affect your lungs as well as your brain, throat..etc. that's why you hack for 20 minutes when you smoke that nasty stuff. also, not to mention that it's addictive like cigarettes as well. both leave black tar and other gunk in your lungs.

rockZboat

Yes and your brain... Do yourself a favor and stay above the influence.


CrazyRussian
yup


essentiallysolo
yes, even more so because pot doesn't come with filters.

Yes apparently it does. Although it affects your brain in a much mellower way. Ay least ya get a buzz with all the damage your causing lungs and throat.


Nikki
yes.

smoking weed is like smoking 25 cigs. However since its natural it does not cause some of the deadly disease that weed does. You can still get cancer just like cigs though.


Wh00ping CrAne
yes dont smoke

Smoking marijuana, even infrequently, can cause burning and stinging of the mouth and throat, and cause heavy coughing. Scientists have found that regular marijuana smokers can experience the same respiratory problems as tobacco smokers do, including:

Daily cough and phlegm production
More frequent acute chest illnesses
Increased risk of lung infections
Obstructed airways
Marijuana contains more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than tobacco smoke and because marijuana smokers usually inhale deeper and hold the smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers, their lungs are exposed to those carcinogenic properties longer.
One study found that marijuana smokers were three times more likely to develop cancer of the head or neck than non-smokers. Many researchers believe than smoking marijuana is overall more harmful to the lungs than smoking tobacco.
