Does smoking weed around a child cause problems like cigarettes?

Does smoking weed around a child cause problems like cigarettes?

Yes: I agree with everything dr snead said. But why are you using drugs in front of your children? It's bad enough you use drugs, but modeling this behavior for them to mimic will encourage their subsequent drug use. Please think about your parental responsibilities, and put this adolescent drug behavior behind you. If you can't, please seek drug/alcohol rehab help. Do it for your kids! ...Read more

Is electronic cigarette as bad as normal cigarette i dont smoke either one of them?

Is electronic cigarette as bad as normal cigarette i dont smoke either one of them?

E-cig vs. cigarettes: E-cigarettes do not contain as many of the toxic substances than regular cigarettes and a such are 'safer'. However, they still contain nicotine which is a highly addictive and dangerous (in high quantities) substance itself. Certain types of e-cigs also enable people to consume vastly higher quantities of nicotine than they would be able to get from cigarettes alone. ...Read more

I have circuitous of the liver. I quit smoking cigarettes and started smoking e cigarette which is worse I'm planning on quitting soon. Have I hurt m?

I have circuitous of the liver. I quit smoking cigarettes and started smoking e cigarette  which is worse I'm planning on quitting soon. Have I hurt m?

Probably not: There is no evidence that electronic cigarettes are worse than cigarettes, just a lack of evidence that they are any better. They do not have the high tar content of smoking tobacco, but they have the same amount of nicotine, and we simply don't know what the other things in e-cigs do - the propellant, oils, flavorings etc. It will not have done any more harm than smoking, and perhaps less. ...Read more

I do not smoke cigarettes but i smoke shisha (hookah) which contains tobacco 0% tar and 0.05% nicotine.Is it better than cigarettes or dangerous too. ?

Dangerous also: It is the toxic residue of more than 4000 chemical compounds created by burning tobacco leaf that constitutes "Tar"THERE IS NO SAFE TOBACCOTar exposure from a light cigarette can be just as high as that from a regular cigarette if the smoker takes long, deep, or frequent puffs.The bottom line is that light cigarettes do not reduce the health risks of smoking.Even without additives tobacco=harm. ...Read more

Smoking cigarettes can=PAD. Can smoking Marijuana also lead to PAD? The smoke or the Nicotine that is the real culprit? I know all smoking is bad.

Smoking cigarettes can=PAD. Can smoking Marijuana also lead to PAD? The smoke or the Nicotine that is the real culprit? I know all smoking is bad.

Probably not: Nicotine can increase heart rate and slightly increase BP but there is no evidence it causes vascular disease. It is the burning tobacco leaf giving off 200+ toxic chemicals that causes vascular and pulmonary disease. The literature does not suggest that marijuana can cause peripheral vascular disease, especially in moderation. One can avoid smoke altogether by eating marijuana brownies/cookies. ...Read more

I'm smoking weeds since 10 years. How can I stop smoking? Is it more dangerous than classic tobacco cigarette?

I'm smoking weeds since 10 years. How can I stop smoking? Is it more dangerous than classic tobacco cigarette?

If you stop: Withdrawal symptoms resolve in 2-3 weeks Gabapentin and N acetyl cysteine (1200 twice daily) have published success. I may add high dose naltrexone with less consistent benefit. Clonidine can help. Valium will also he helpful and a sedative is essential in the worst cases but carries its own risk of dependence. ...Read more

Hi, how bad is nicotine without all these bad substances from regular cigarette? I'm "smoking" e-cigarette a lot and i wonder is it bad for health?

Hi, how bad is nicotine without all these bad substances from regular cigarette?  I'm "smoking" e-cigarette a lot and i wonder is it bad for health?

It's just bad: A e-cig is a fancy modern way of giving people a very addictive drug. In america, we are free, free to go buy this drug and put it into our bodies... So no matter how one looks at it, the outcome will just be larger numbers of addicted people. For example, some people who quit smoking due to the toxic effects of smoke, will now resume their nicotine addiction with the cleaner e-cigs. ...Read more

Would occasional marijuana use cause health problems just like tobacco would?

Would occasional marijuana use cause health problems just like tobacco would?

Much safer but...: Tobacco use dramatically increases risk of many cancers, heart disease, strokes & chronic lung disease. Marijuana hasn't been proven to increase risk of these (except regular use can increase lung disease) & in general is far safer than tobacco. However, regular use before age 18 is associated with long-term lowered IQ so I advise extreme caution re: use in adolescence. See http://bit.ly/STxBwe ...Read more

What are the side affects if you smoke weed & cigarettes then take a break from smoking weed but start to smoke more cigarettes than weed ?

Not good: None are good options.Marijuana smoke contains bronchial irritants. Inhalation with marijuana is more prolonged & deeper than with tobacco. Higher combustion temperatures are reached because it is smoked to a shorter butt. This leads to a carboxyhemoglobin concentration that is 5 times higher than tobacco. 3 times more tar is inhaled. ...Read more

Does smoking clove cigarettes cause health problems in children as much as other types of cigarettes

Does smoking clove cigarettes cause health problems in children as much as other types of cigarettes

Yes: Clove cigarettes, or kreteks, are made with a combination of tobacco, cloves and other herbs. They have all the badness of regular cigarettes, and there have been reports of people being hospitalized and even coughing up blood after smoking them. You can't lessen the negative impact of smoking with more smoking. The way to avoid the health problems you're asking about is to not smoke. ...Read more

Will marijuana use, using a vaporizer (no smoke or combustion) affect pancreas, liver or kidney. I under tobacco smoke does, even marijuana smoke. But vaporizing eliminates all toxins. ?

No.: Vaporizing merely eliminates smoke . A marijuana joint burns up to 2, 012 degrees fahrenheit (1.100 degree c) and in the process creates many harmful carcinogens. Smoke is the prime cause of lung cancer and other respiratory disorders but it doesn't eliminate all toxins. ...Read more

Smoking djarum clove cigars, how bad is it? I smoke about 6 to 8 a day. They are the same size as a regular cigarette

Smoking djarum clove cigars, how bad is it? I smoke about  6 to 8 a day. They are the same size as a regular cigarette

They are terrible: Cloves have at least twice the amount of toxic "tars" as tobacco, carry more carbon monoxide into the body, and have a specific chemical called eugenol which is especially damaging to lungs. They are not a healthier alternative to tobacco, even though they do not have nicotine. However, they are less "addicting" and easier to quit than tobacco, and that is exactly what you should do! ...Read more
