No: Not a good thing to do. The intentional habit of inhaling burning organic material, combined with various chemicals used in the growing and manufacturing of that material (regardless of whether it is tobacco, marijuana, or any other plant) is bad for the body. Just think about it. Who would intentionally start something burning and inhale the stuff over and over and over?

Unwise: Tobacco, marijuana, or anything else that you may smoke can cause irritation of the gum tissues, affecting contour of the permanent restoration. Therefore, not wise.
