The more you smoke..: ...The more damage you will do to your lungs. A vaporizer won't change this fact at all.

Get a vaporizer: Cannabis actually has some bronchodilating effects, but when smoked, you are also getting all the tars and other impurities. Since a vaporizer will give you the cannabis (thc) without the overwhelming majority of the stuff you dont want, it is worth the initial espense. However, smoking weed "all day" is not a good thing, indicates good chances of dependency and other harms. Talk to a counselor.
