What permanent side effects of smoking weed are there?

Cognition & emotion: Thc dulls mentation and distorts mood; some people are especially vulnerable and develop minor major paranoid states. Repetition of these mental states just by itself tends to embed them making them harder and harder to reverse (and to reclaim "lost" time).

I was wondering what are the side effects of smoking cigarette ?

I was wondering what are the side effects of smoking cigarette ?

"side effects???": I don;t think I would consider chronic bronchitis and emphysema (COPD), being unable to get enough oxygen and going into heart failure, developing arteriosclerosis and having heart attack or stroke, or getting any of large number of cancers (mostly lung, head and neck, but many others) to be "side effects." They are the complications of using a poisonous substance over time. And there are more. ...Read more

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?

What are the side effects of smoking weed and cigarettes but taking a break from weed and start to smoke cigarettes more ?

Respiratory/heart: Neither is good to use, so taking "a break" from both would have the side effect of better health. Smoking tobacco or weed creates the same dilemma for lung health -inhaling partially combusted botanical material laced with chemicals. Equally, cardiovascular health is compromised by using either. Infections occur more frequently in smokers too. So quit both & try not to rationalize their use. ...Read more
