Question of the Day

What are the drawbacks of smoking cannabis?

The drawback of smoking is the smoke; cannabis and tobacco smoke contain a similar range of harmful bronchial irritants and carcinogens. Drawing smoke through a water pipe removes gas-phase smoke toxins, such as carbon monoxide, acetaldehyde, ammonia, and nitrosamines. Particulate-phase toxins such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (“tar”) are not as readily removed by water pipes.
