Avoid marijuana: Smoking (inhaling smoke, which is full of lung irritants and cancer-causing chemicals) of any kind is unhealthy. We humans are not designed to inhale the byproducts of burning organic materials and whatever other chemical additives are mixed in with the plant materials. Avoid intentionally inhaling burning materials. It's just a bad idea, and not healthy for the body.

No smoking or very very little occasional Marijuana use, have "minor" chest congestion, constant throat, chest tickle, no cold symptoms. I'm 35 yr old?

No smoking or very very little occasional Marijuana use, have "minor" chest congestion, constant throat, chest tickle, no cold symptoms. I'm 35 yr old?

Bronchiitis: Sounds like it might be a touch of bronchitis that is viral in nature. You likely don't need antibiotics, and could just "tough it out". But if you are constantly coughing and clearing your throat you could try over the counter anti tussive medication such as dextromethorphan = robitussin (guaifenesin) or delsym. But if that does not work there are prescription based meds such as benzonatate.
