I smoke pot everyday. I am 21 years old and have been doing it since I was 15. I am sure I probably shouldnt but it mellows me out. Is it just as bad as smoking or is it different since it is more natural.

I'm not exactly sure what you

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "more natural"--tobacco is a natural plant just like marijuana is. Just because marijuana cigarettes aren't mass produced in a factor doesn't necessarily make them more natural.

Smoking pot can cause a lot of the same health problems as smoking tobacco cigarettes--it puts you at risk for a lot of the same respiratory problems like a chronic cough, bronchitis and emphysema. Marijuana smoke has also been found to contain 50-70% more carcinogens that tobacco smoke and pot smokers often inhale more deeply and hold the smoke in their lung longer, suggesting that marijuana may increase a person's risk for cancer more than tobacco.

The THC in marijuana has been shown to impair the immune system, and heart attack risk is 4 times as likely as usual in the hour after smoking marijuana.
