In brief: No
Copd, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe.
Smoking cigarettes causes copd, and cigarette smokers who also smoke marijuana make their COPD even worse. Researchers are still uncertain how much COPD is caused by marijuana-smoking if the smokers never smoke cigarettes (maybe there aren't enough "marijuana-only" smokers to do research on).
