I am a heavy smoker of both marijuana and cigarettes. After smoking marijuana, i tried to stand up and walk. My vision went black and i fainted.

Please stop/cut back: Fainting after standing is generally caused by low blood pressure and marijuana is known to lower blood pressure.

How do I quit smoking? Because of my cold, its summer time to I have a dry throat, cough blurry vision runny and sore nose, does smoking ciggaratte cause that?

Smoking cessation: All of these symptom you are having can be directly a result of smoking, or, if not a direct result they can certainly be worsened by the smoking. Smoke is an irritant, and a poison that the body does not like or want, so it will try to get rid of it by the symptoms your feeling.

Why doesn't the government do more about children smoking?

Why doesn't the government do more about children smoking?

Wrong forum : Many things in a society are left to individuals to decide. That's called liberty. With this gift there are abuses. If a doctor knows a child is allowed to smoke by their parents then she must consider if child abuse is present. If so then there is governmental protocol for helping the child. But what about an 18 yr old smoker? Parents smoking? We can't legislate common sense. ...Read more
