Joe
Is marijuana worse for your lungs than cigarettes.?
When you compare a single joint to a single cigarette, which causes more damage to your lungs? Which would do more harm over time considering how pot smokers smoke less than cigarette smokers? What about when you compare a bong or a bubbler to a cigarette?

I think it's kind of evened out.
- You hold the smoke from marijuana in your lungs for a lot longer than a cigarette
- Marijuana has a lot more tar than cigarettes
- Some people can smoke up to 2 packets of cigarettes a day
- You're probably going to smoke cigarettes more often than weed
Smoking weed and tobacco is much worse than just smoking one of the two. I smoke both, but a lot of the heavy weed smokers I know only smoke weed, they might have one or two cigarettes a month.
I think overall if you're a heavy marijuana smoker (smoking at least 2-3 times a day on average) for a long time, I'm sure this will be worse than smoking cigarettes.


Josh
Marijuana is worse because the smoke is stronger and you hold it in longer. But as you say, people are likely to smoke more cigarettes than joints, if you're just a social smoker the risk from cigarettes is low but if you're smoking three packs a day it starts to build up with time.

Well, there isn't a filter to protect your throat from the intense heat.
I suppose you are wondering because of the number of puffs as compared to the intense inhaling of the joint to the ciggy. Compare that to the risk of a fine if you got caught and well, I dunno.
I heard that it is good for pain...I tried it just after an operation on my foot and it didn't help at all.

single joint if smoked by yourself is gunna be worse. but in the long run you will smoke many less joints and thc is an anti-carcinogen so there's very little chance of lung cancer. Bong and bubbler are more healthy than cigarettes because the water cools down the smoke and filters out some tar
