Weed is no worse than tobacco. More chemicals are put into tobacco than weed, and it is also more addictive. That is not to say that smoking weed all the time is not any better, but I digress.
As for myself, I don't smoke weed. Never really found the need/want for it. But I've got several close friends who toke none stop. Personal choice.
from my sources one joint has as many carcinogens as 10-15 cigarettes. the reason ppl dont think its bad is because it hasnt been studied much. ive also heard it leads to throat and mouth cancer. medically it is unnecessary because there are other drugs that do the same thing without the harmful side effects .
but hey, thats all info from health class and from the ADA, so it could just be scare tactics from the government lol.
im also guilty tho but def not while snowboarding thats dumb
