When you start choking while smoking weed, does that mean the marijuana smoke got in your lungs?

In brief: Not necessarily

We have reflexes built into our airways, before you get to the air sacs of the lungs, that cause coughing to get rid of large or irritant particles.
Excessive coughing can lead to a choking sensation, and actually may result in vomiting. Anything we smoke gets into the body through the air sacs of the lungs, otherwise we would not have any effect from them, whether it is thc, nicotine or cocaine.
