Is cannabis just as likely to cause lung cancer as cigarettes?

Regular Joe
Well, I have heard that it isn't as dangerous because you don't smoke as much pot as you do tobacco.

Se√°n O
Actually the answer is no. There is no tar or nicotine in cannabis. As a rule it hasn't been genetically modified to develop addiction.

The down side is in some environments its laced with other drugs (e.g. LSD) to make it more potent and develop addiction. Also in the Netherlands it's been selectively developed to increase the THC levels and its a lot more powerful than the drug that was decriminalized.

For the record - I don't consume the stuff.

Cannabis has far more hidden dangers then simple lung cancer. Google US troops and cannabis viet nam. users have had some terrible OPs to simply stay alive.
Cannabis is the start to even greater danger to follow.

The jury is out on this one. Some studies indicate no more dangersous than cigs, others say more. The first indicates that cannabis alone is not likely to cause it, a combination of both is certainly great risk. Google for yorself and read all articles. I wouldn't necessarily trust the NORML websites, they have their own agenda.

It does, it has similar toxins like the cigarettes, which causes cancer.

depends on how you use it.

If you mix it with a cigarettes and smoke it then yes because you are removing the filter. If you eat it or smoke it using a pipe or bong then I don't see how if could.

yes, you are still using tobacco in your spliff and you are removing the tip and replacing with a piece of rolled up cardboard...your probably increasing your chance aswell.

It has a higher chance because it has a higher tar content than do cigarettes.

yes for sure.

I've read several reports that say it does and just as many saying it doesn't if it's smoked. A recent American study claiming it didn't was apparently suppressed by the Government.
If you use it with tobacco then you'll be at the same risk as anyone smoking the same amount of cigarettes because it's not the nicotine that causes cancer but all the chemicals tobacco contains.
It's actually safer apparently to smoke Turkish tobacco, it has been dried naturally and doesn't have the same chemicals added to it.
There was a study done where the users 'ate' the cannabis and it showed no increase in those and when fed to mice less animals got cancer than the control group.
Makes you wonder who is really telling the truth? and what their agenda might be?
Personally I've used it on and off for 30 years, my hubby has never touched it. We both smoke but only one of us has cancer and it isn't me!

Misty Blue
Yep and if it doesn't get you there's always the raised risk of schizophrenia.

Probably, but the mental effects are what would worry me the most not to mention the cost!

Peter O
more so because pot heads hold the puff in longer to get the most of the the cannabis


Zara W
yes,just stay away!!


**No, cannabis does not cause cancer.**

The widely believed myth is that the amount of tar in marijuana will give the marijuana smoker cancer. But there is more than one chemical at work, not just the tar...

Donald Tashkin (of UCLA) a pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years, has discovered that another chemical in marijuana, THC actually kills off aging cells, and as a result, prevents the aging cells from becoming cancerous. So while a marijuana smoker is in fact inhaling tar, the smoker is also inhaling THC, which is found to have a potentially protective effect.

On the other hand, tobacco cigarettes contain tar, arsenic, formaldehyde, and many other chemicals known to cause cancer. So when a tobacco cigarette smoker inhales, they are introducing a variety of chemicals into their body, all of which have been proven to damage the body and cause cancer,

So, the way I look at it, smoking cannabis balances the harmful chemicals, with non-harmful chemicals, leaving no statistical evidence that marijuana causes cancer.
