Is marijuana safer or more dangerous than cigarettes?
Is marijuana safer or more dangerous than cigarettes? i just want to know.

Well, one joint is basically 5x as bad for your lungs as a cigarette. Marijuana is also much worse for your brain then tobacco. However, if you smoke cigarettes, you're probably smoking 5-7 a day, so as long as you limit yourself to 2-3 times a week (I personally only do it once at most), you should be fine. Also, cigarettes are much more likely to cause cancer in any part of the body then marijuana.

Smoke in your lungs is smoke in your lungs i would not do either

Smoke of any kind is unhealthy. Marijuana smoke contains the same bad chemicals that cig smoke contains, and many of those chemicals, like benzene, have been linked to cancer independently of smoke.

However, that only means that the smoked form of marijuana is not that great. On the other side though, studies are coming out showing that there is no correlation between marijuana smoke and copd or lung cancer. I suspect those results are more due to the fact that most people dont smoke near as much marijuana as people smoke cigs.

Other forms of use though, such as vaporizing or cooking in food, is DEFINITELY safer than cigs. Nicotine is a toxin, marijuana is not. Commercial cigs add tons of other chemicals, marijuana is largely unprocessed so it doesnt get that extra stuff. Cigs are chemically addictive while marijuana is not. To my knowledge cigs have no real medical benefit but marijuana does.

hey girl heeyyy
its definitely safer.

A doctor did a 30 year study on the effects of marijuana on the lungs, and he proved that you will never have lung complications do to marijuana.


it depends on how you act when your high

Dr. C
It is difficult to answer your question.

While much of the health risks of cigarette smoking is know, relatively little is known about smoking marijuana. One major reason is because the DEA classifies it as a schedule I drug. Schedule I drugs are those with "high abuse liability and no approved medical use." As a result, it is extremely difficult to obtain approval and supplies to perform reproducible, accurate, and rigorous research on the health effects of this drug.

Marijuana smoke has also been shown to contain carcinogens. Unfortunately, no study has definitively shown a link between marijuana smoke and cancer. However, there is good evidence that marijuana use is associated with greater lung problems, including asthma and COPD. Is it also associated with an increased risk of heart attacks. Marijuana use is associated with addiction and mental illness. Lastly, frequent marijuana users miss more days from work and have more health problems.

I can't believe I am fixing to say this. Marijuana is safer body wise than cigarettes. It doesn't have all those additives in it and it also doesn't cause the tar that cigarettes do. They do have a tar but not a dangerous one like with cigarettes. But both are very addictive and are hard to get away from. Cigarettes don't make you high like with marijuana . You can get a rush from a cigarette.

also to some of the other respondents.The average weed smoker smokes more than just 3 times a WEEK. lol what ever. ha I have a nephew that has smoked since he was a kid and he is 25 now. He has smoked more than that in a week. A day even . lol

i wouldn't say SAFER but definitely not as dangerous as cigarettes. as a lover of the green, i'm gonna always say to stay away from the man made, toxin filled cigs. they are bad for you in any way that you look at it. in moderation and with self control, mj is perfectly ok to me:)

Iv'e done a lot of research into this, (both reading and personal experience) and by the looks of things, I seem to know more than some of the people here. Marijuana is perfectly safe, it contains none of the poisonous toxins found in tobacco. It has not had any PROVEN harmful effects on the body. It also causes no mental health problems. And that is true, providing that you do not have any mental conditions prior to using marijuana.

Timothy's wrong. Cigarettes are really bad for you; they give you cancer and put holes in your lungs. Marijuana actually reduces the risk of some types of cancer. And, unless you smoke a whole lot, your lungs repair themselves relatively quickly compared to cigs

cigarettes are much more unhealthy than weed. weed can even be good for you. weed is EXTREMELY rare, if even possible, to get addicted to. cigarettes can have you hooked after one. CAN have you hooked. you probably wont need nicorette gum if you smoke a cigarette, but its possible because nicotine is highly addictive. alcohol and cigarettes are way worse than weed. keep tokin brah.

Marijuana is a dried leaf that is crumbled, set on fire, and smoked. ONE ingredient: DRIED LEAF.

Cigarettes contain over 600 ADDED chemicals.

Here are some more FACTS:

“More deaths are caused each year by TOBACCO use than by all deaths from human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), ILLEGAL DRUG USE, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders COMBINED.”
