  • Marijuana Better for Your Lungs Than Tobacco

    According to a study published in Journal of the American Medical Association in January, marijuana does not impair lung function and can even increase lung capacity.

    Researchers looking for risk factors of heart disease tested the lung function of 5115 young adults over the course of 20 years. Tobacco smokers lost lung function over time, but pot users actually showed an increase in lung capacity.

    The increased lung capacity may due to taking a deep breaths while inhaling the drug.

        As has been said before on this forum. Marijuana per se will not hurt your lungs. It's the setting it on fire and inhaling the burning hot fumes that will do the damage.
