Jun 5 - Cannabis Risk's? New studies
 

 
Experts are warning that the public dangerously underestimates the health risks linked to smoking cannabis.

The British Lung Foundation carried out a survey of 1,000 adults and found a third wrongly believed cannabis did not harm health.

And 88% incorrectly thought tobacco cigarettes were more harmful than cannabis ones - when the risk of lung cancer is actually 20 times higher.

The BLF said the lack of awareness was "alarming".
Widely used

Latest figures show that 30% of 16-59 year-olds in England and Wales have used cannabis in their lifetimes.

A new report from the BLF says there are established scientific links between smoking cannabis and tuberculosis, acute bronchitis and lung cancer.

Cannabis has also been shown to increase chances of developing mental health problems such as schizophrenia.

Part of the reason for this, say the experts, is that people smoking cannabis take deeper puffs and hold them for longer than when smoking tobacco cigarettes.

This means that someone smoking a cannabis cigarette inhales four times as much tar as from a tobacco cigarette, and five times as much carbon monoxide, the BLF says.

Its survey found that young people are particularly unaware of the risks.

Almost 40% of the under-35s surveyed - the age group most likely to have smoked it - thought cannabis was not harmful.

However, each cannabis cigarette they smoke increases their chances of developing lung cancer by as much as an entire packet of 20 tobacco cigarettes, the BLF warned.

Its chief executive, Dame Helena Shovelton, said: "It is alarming that, while new research continues to reveal the multiple health consequences of smoking cannabis, there is still a dangerous lack of public awareness of quite how harmful this drug can be.

"This is not a niche problem - cannabis is one of the most widely-used recreational drugs in the UK, with almost a third of the population having tried it.

"We therefore need a serious public health campaign - of the kind that has helped raise awareness of the dangers of eating fatty foods or smoking tobacco - to finally dispel the myth that smoking cannabis is somehow a safe pastime."

The BLF's report says there should be a public education programme to raise awareness of the impact of smoking cannabis and increased investment in research into the health consequences of its use

who has gotten lung cancer from smoking weed.. and this study is about smoking joints.. the paper used to smoke them is what reacts with different chemicals to cause this.

Which is why there is the vaporizer... furthermore this is a smear tactic..and propanganda .

They not going to say isht about ingesting it.. and if it was readily available (legal) I would be more prone to buying a cannibis ginger ale than smoking it..

hitting it from a bong is just as bad more or less.. Vapes are the only way to go if you want the safest method of "smoking"

Anyone with any common sense knows breathing any smoke is bad... But this bsquare about connections between weed and lung cancer is bullsh*t...

So is the 4 times amount of tar as a cig... Sure its true but what they fail to tellyou is that your body can remove marijuana tar from the lungs but it can't remove tobacco tar....

you potheads are CRAZY defensive, lmao. this is a bunch of propaganda though. schizophrenia? gtfoh. only thing it portrays accurately is the harmful effects of smoking (this is true of inhaling ANY kind of smoke). that, and they forget to mention that it's not good for people with bad hearts. blood pressure drops and standing heart rate doubles. sucks, but it could lead to a heart attack.

Different strains have different side effects. I can smoke hash and have a blast but any form of weed puts me into a straight panic attack, EVERY TIME. I just can't do it anymore. But it never happened up until I freaked out on the synthetic BS. Ruined the real stuff for me.

Im on my cellphone... Just do some research... Look up studies on marijuana vs lung cancer and the amount of tar that comes from marijuana.

And look at independent studies.... Anything funded by through government or studies done by them will be set up to make it look bad....

Like how they say marijuana k!lls brain cells... Really what they did is pump 15 joints of pot smoke into monkeys for 5 minutes... No extra oxygen to balance it out... Just pot smoke... After 30 days some monies had died and they ran tests on their brains and found their brain cells had died so they said marijuana k!lls brain cells... But really they suffocated the monkeys for 5 minutes everyday, which caused brain cells to die.

Just another bs government study with bs results

Actually the opposite.

With a vaporizer you only inhale the vapor from the heated thc, and other cannabinoids... So instead of smoking the actual leaf and the plant you're only smoking the part that gets you high... And you get less of the tar that comes from burning the actual plant.
