How bad is it for your health to occasionally smoke cannabis?

Cannabis damage

Cognitive
Zalesky et al 2012 show long-term cannabis use is hazardous to white matter in the developing brain. Given the association between cannabis-related harms and age of onset of regular use, delaying use may minimize such harmful effects. Disturbed brain connectivity in cannabis users may underlie cognitive impairment and vulnerability to psychosis, depression and anxiety disorders (Lim et al., 2002)

How can cannabis effect mental health?

Maybe disastrously

Cannabis
It can be DISASTROUS!! THC can have some very upsetting side effects (especially if you already have psychiatric problems) and it could cause some people to feel anxious or to panic. Some people may feel paranoid or even lose touch with reality. Concentrations of THC vary depending on what part of the plant is used and you never know if THC has been mixed with another chemical.

Do you recommend cannabis as an alternative medicine? I know it is illegally federally but there is mounting evidence supporting the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

Med MJ is a rip-off.

No. There are better medicines. The "medicinal effects" are theoretical at best. Cannabis, as presently available-in both the legalized system and the street drug system-is highly variable in potency &additives. It is a very difficult drug to manage, and the beneficial effects are overstated. Lack of motivation is a huge side effect. There are few successful, happy big-time pot users.

How can someone that smokes cannabis once, every two months be affected his/her health?

Psychiatric

Unfortunately cannabis can have devastating psychological effects on some people- paranoia, delusions, anxiety, panic attacks etc. In those cases, even if used infrequently, cannabis can be the gift that keeps on giving.

Dr. Emily Massey answered:

What causes cannabis to cause mental health problems for some but not for others?

Cannabis

Cannabis
If someone is genetically at risk for developing depression, anxiety, or even psychosis (i.e. - schizophrenia), marijuana can hasten their onset and/or exacerbate these disorders. However, almost anyone who uses marijuana frequently enough can develop one or more of these disorders, as the brain will try to adjust by semi-permanently producing or absorbing less of certain chemicals.

Can you tell me about what is more harmful to health, cannabis or alcohol?

Alcohol

Alcohol
kills somewhere around 100,000 people in the US every year, far more world-wide. It causes over $200 billion in economic losses, and a huge amount of illnesses - damages brain, heart, liver, endocrine organs and pretty much everything else. Cannabis effects, however damaging some think they are, do not come close to the damage of alcohol. However, in people with addiction, both are harmful.

I am very interested in the medicinal properties and uses for medical cannabis. Do you see the medicinal benefits and do you think that it would be wise to use or preventative care?

Very rarely, and no

Cannabis
For most, cannabis use has far more risks than benefits. I've seen people become very psychotic, paranoid, and socially isolated -- with distorted perceptions that lead to life-threatening behavior. I don't see that this is "preventative" care in ANY way. In very rare cases of chemotherapy-induced nausea where nothing else helps, perhaps a role; rare cases of cancer-related cachexia, etc.

Can sharing a house with a cannabis smoker cause health problems?

Yes

Cannabis
Just as tobacco contains toxins -so does cannabis. Sharing the house will expose you to second hand smoke. The cannabis smoker is putting everyone else's health at risk.
