A 37-year-old male asked:
When compared with smoking marijuana, is vaporizing marijuana less harmful? are there risks other than addiction that someone needs to be aware of?

: Your worry is a good sign. Sure vapor is "better" than "smoke" but drugs like nicotine and cannabis are at best habit forming and at worse addicting. NO DRUG in excess is healthy!! Why take chances???
