I'm going to go ahead and say that I did not read the entire article before posting this comment. I had a question pop into my head and I had to ask it before I lost it. The article states " biggest risk of smoking weed is the smoke itself, which contains the same kind of cancer-causing chemicals as cigarette smoke". Now maybe I am just a super uneducated smoker but I didn't think that weed and cigarettes had the same chemicals in them. From what I've always been told, cigarettes have things like formaldehyde in them, whereas weed is just trimmed from the plant and put in a bag. And if you smoke it out of glass, then it truly is just smoking a plant from glass. Now, I am aware that smoking anything is bad for your lungs and also using lighters which contain butane has an effect but I just became a little confused when it was said that they have the same chemicals in them. I would love for someone with a little insight to help me out with this. Thanks.
