A 20-year-old member asked:
I have a open wound from a pilonidal cyst surgery from 3 weeks ago and went from 1.5 inches to 1 inch and was wondering ifb1 marijuana cigarette would affect or delay the healing process?

Hard to guess but: 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?
