Try to stop smoking: What is "light" marijuana smoking? Any at all is harmful -- mj smoke is just as bad for lung health as tobacco. Your symptoms suggest bronchial/lung irritation and damage from smoking. Discuss with your doctor: you need lung function testing and maybe a chest xray. There may be alternate treatments (cannabinoids or other) that would help whatever symptoms you are treating with mj.
