Nothing Good: There are no known health benefits of smoking tobacco products & smoking anything else is debateable except that there is some evidence that smoking pot does decrease the side-effects of some anti-cancer treatments. Smoking tobacco causes a wide range of problems from copd, emphysema, oral cancer, to lung cancer & heart diseases.
