Marijuana Smokers

Smoking just one marijuana joint could have the same effect on your lungs as smoking up to five cigarettes at one time.

That's according to a study from New Zealand, where researchers compared lung function among cannabis smokers, tobacco smokers, and non-smokers.

The study pointed to a potentially greater danger among marijuana smokers because they tend to use unfiltered joints, inhale more deeply and hold their breath longer than cigarette smokers.
