Smoking Both Cigarettes And Pot Exponentially Increases Harm To Lungs

In case you needed another reason to stop smoking cigarettes, a recent study revealed that people who smoke cigarettes and pot increase their risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) almost threefold.

Oh, and there’s no known cure for this disease.

An interesting finding in the study was that smoking pot but not cigarettes doesn’t seem to affect someone’s chances of contracting COPD (although researchers say the study wasn’t comprehensive enough to make a definite conclusion on that).

The researchers recommended that anti-smoking campaigns should be re-tooled to include the results of this study.

Said lead researcher Dr. Wan Tan, of the University of British Columbia:

“Anti-smoking campaigns should include a reduction in marijuana use among their goals, aiming especially at those who smoke both marijuana and tobacco.”

The bottom line is this: If you smoke either substance, quit immediately! If live in a state where medical marijuana is legal and have been prescribed it by a credible doctor, find other ways to ingest it other than smoking it!!
