Jul 30 - New Study - Weed damages lungs more than tobacco
 

 
Cannabis harm worse than tobacco

A single cannabis joint could damage the lungs as much as smoking up to five tobacco cigarettes one after another, scientists in New Zealand have said.

The research, published in the journal Thorax, found cannabis damaged the large airways in the lungs causing symptoms such as coughing and wheezing.

It also damaged the ability of the lungs to get oxygen to, and remove waste products from tissues.

Experts say the study confirms that the drug represents a serious health risk.

In the study researchers from the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand, Wakefield Hospital and the Wellington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, studied 339 volunteers.

They took CT scans of their lungs and tested their lung function through breathing tests to a.ssess their lung damage.

Participants were divided into four groups - cannabis smokers, combined cannabis and tobacco smokers, tobacco smokers, and non-smokers, and gave them a questionnaire on their smoking habits.

Cannabis smokers were included if they had smoked at least one joint per day for at least five years, while tobacco smokers had to have smoked 20 cigarettes per day for one year.

Cannabis smokers reported symptoms such as wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and excessive phlegm production.

The drug also reduced the numbers of small, fine airways that transport oxygen and waste products to and from blood vessels in the lungs.

And it damaged the function of the large airways of the lungs, obstructing air flow and forcing the lungs to work harder, so contributing to symptoms such as coughing, and the development of bronchitis.

The extent of this large airway damage was directly related to the number of joints smoked - the more joints smoked, the more damage was seen.

However, in this study, people who smoked only cannabis were not found to suffer from emphysema, a serious and crippling lung disease which was previously thought to be linked to the drug.

Impact

The authors said: "The most important finding was that one joint of cannabis was similar to 2.5 to five tobacco cigarettes in terms of causing airflow obstruction.

They said the impact of cannabis was likely to be due to the way in which cannabis joints are smoked - joints do not usually have filters, and they reach higher temperatures with users inhaling more deeply and holding their breath for longer than cigarette smokers.

The British Lung Foundation welcomed the research, and Dr Keith Prowse, chairman of the foundation said: "This research confirms that cannabis poses a serious health risk to the lungs, and smoking a joint can be more harmful to the lungs than smoking a cigarette.

"It's important to remember, though, that tobacco continues to be more harmful overall because it is typically smoked in much higher quantities than cannabis."

The warnings come after recent research suggested cannabis smokers were 40% more likely than non-users to suffer psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia.

Cannabis joints damage lungs more than tobacco - study

Ian Sample, science correspondent
Tuesday July 31, 2007
The Guardian

A single cannabis joint may cause as much damage to the lungs as five chain-smoked cigarettes, research has found. Medical examinations of cannabis and cigarette smokers found the drug increased specific lung problems, including obstructed airways and hyperinflation, a condition where too much air remains in the lungs when a person exhales.

Smoking one cannabis joint caused damage equivalent to smoking 2.5 to five cigarettes in rapid succession, researchers at the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand found. Doctors who carried out the study believe the damage is linked to the difference in the way cannabis is usually smoked, with users inhaling hard, holding their breath for longer and failing to use filters.

The report follows a flurry of confessions from ministers who admitted having used the illegal drug and comes days after a review of cannabis research, published in the Lancet medical journal, revealed that cannabis use may be to blame for 800 cases of serious psychosis in Britain.

The scientists set out to investigate whether smoking cannabis put users at greater risk of developing emphysema, a progressive and potentially fatal lung disease.

A group of 339 volunteers aged 18 to 70 were divided into four groups according to whether they smoked only cannabis, only tobacco, both, or were non-smokers. Each volunteer was then subjected to lung function tests and x-ray scans of their chests to a.ssess the level of damage to their lungs and airways.

In the study, published in the journal Thorax, all smokers complained of coughs and wheezing, while only tobacco smokers showed signs of emphysema. Coughing was reduced among people who smoked cannabis and tobacco, possibly because these people smoked pure cannabis joints and so less tobacco leaf.

The extent of lung damage was directly related to the number of joints smoked. "The most important finding was that one joint of cannabis was similar to 2.5 to five tobacco cigarettes in terms of causing airflow obstruction," the authors write. "This pattern is likely to relate to the different characteristics of the cannabis joint and the way in which it is smoked. Cannabis is usually smoked without a filter and to a shorter butt length, and the smoke is a higher temperature," they add.

One cannabis joint has same effect on lungs as five cigarettes

PARIS (AFP) - Smoking a single joint of cannabis has the same impact on breathing capacity as up to five cigarettes, according to a New Zealand study published on Monday in a specialist British journal, Thorax.
ADVERTISEMENT

Medical Research Institute of New Zealand doctors recruited 339 volunteers, who were divided into four categories -- those who smoked only cannabis, those who smoked only tobacco, those who smoked both, and those who smoked neither.

Cannabis-only smokers were defined as those who had smoked the equivalent of at least one joint a day for five years; tobacco-only smokers were those who had smoked the equivalent of a packet of cigarettes a day for at least a year.

All the participants were scanned by computed tomography (CT) to get a high-definition image of their lungs and were given tests to a.ssess their airflow, the term for their respiratory efficiency.

The most serious damage was found in tobacco smokers -- both tobacco-only and combined users -- who were the only volunteers to have emphysema, a degenerative and crippling lung disease.

Cannabis smokers had lighter symptoms, such as wheeze, cough, chest tightness and phlegm, which tobacco smokers also had.

But the CT scan also revealed that, among cannabis smokers, fine damage had occurred to their lungs. This had happened in small fine airways that are important for bringing in oxygen and taking away waste gases. As a result, their lungs had to work harder.

The extent of the damage rose in proportion to the number of joints that had been smoked.

In statistical terms, each joint that was smoked was the equivalent of smoking between two and a half and five cigarettes in one go for impairing lung efficiency.

The researchers, led by Richard Beasley, said the discovery of this hazard is "of major public health significance" given that cannabis is the most widely-used illegal drug worldwide.

According to the 2006 report by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, an estimated 160 million people use cannabis, also called marijuana.

Beasley suggests that the reason for cannabis' heavy toll on the lungs stems the fact that joints are usually smoked without a filter and are smoked down as far as possible, which means the smoke is hotter when it arrives in the lungs.

In addition, cannabis users tend to inhale smoke more deeply and then hold their breath in order to get a bigger "high".

On Saturday, a study published in the British journal The Lancet said there was now clear evidence of a link between cannabis smoking and mental ill-health.

'Cannabis doubles psychosis risk'

3.55, Fri Jul 27 2007

Regular use of cannabis can more than double the chances of suffering psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia, scientists have found.

The data, complied from 35 different studies and published in The Lancet, shows that taking the drug just once increases the risk of mental illness by 41 per cent. For frequent users, this rose to between 50 per cent and 200 per cent.

Scientists found heavy cannabis users were the most likely to suffer a psychotic breakdown marked by delusions, hallucinations or disordered thoughts.

'Cannabis doubles psychosis risk'

3.55, Fri Jul 27 2007

Regular use of cannabis can more than double the chances of suffering psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia, scientists have found.

The data, complied from 35 different studies and published in The Lancet, shows that taking the drug just once increases the risk of mental illness by 41 per cent. For frequent users, this rose to between 50 per cent and 200 per cent.

Scientists found heavy cannabis users were the most likely to suffer a psychotic breakdown marked by delusions, hallucinations or disordered thoughts.

Around 20 per cent of young adults claim to take cannabis at least once a week and around 40 per cent are believed to have tried it at some time in their lives.

The research, funded by the Department of Health and based at the University of Bristol, implies that 14 per cent of psychotic illness now affecting this demographic could be prevented if no one took the drug.

Danish experts Merete Nordentoft and Carsten Hijorthoj calculated that taking cannabis might account for 800 new cases of schizophrenia among 15 to 34-year-olds in the UK each year, a.ssuming a causal relationship.

Commenting on the research in the journal, they wrote: "This finding has tremendous implications for young people, their families, and society."

Prime Minister Gordon Brown is currently mulling whether the drug should be returned to class B status after his predecessor Tony Blair had cannabis downgraded to class C, meaning possession was not an arrestable offence.

Alternatively, a class B rating could be reserved just for the extra-potent form of cannabis known as "skunk".

Senior author Professor Glyn Lewis, from the University of Bristol, said: "It is difficult to be certain about whether cannabis use causes psychotic illnesses such as schizophrenia.

"It is possible that the people who use cannabis might have other characteristics that themselves increase risk of psychotic illness.

"However, all the studies have found an a.ssociation and it seems appropriate to warn members of the public about the possible risk."

Colleague Dr Stanley Zammit, from Bristol and Cardiff universities, pointed out that even if cannabis did increase the risk of psychosis, most people using the drug would not get ill.

But he added: "Nevertheless, we would still advise people to avoid or limit their use of this drug, especially if they start to develop any mental health symptoms or if they have relatives with psychotic illnesses."


Cannabis Could Increase Psychotic Illness Risk

Ivanhoe Newswire

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Smoking cannabis, or marijuana, could affect your mental health as you get older.

Researchers from the United Kingdom analyzed 35 studies dated up to 2006. They found young people who use the drug could increase their risk of developing a psychotic illness later in life by more than 40 percent.

The study shows the amount of risk was relative to the dose, with the most frequent cannabis users more than twice as likely to have a psychotic outcome. The report also looked at the effects of the drug on depression, suicidal thoughts, and anxiety, but found less consistent outcomes.

In an accompany article, doctors from Denmark are quoted as saying, "In the public debate, cannabis has been considered a more or less harmless drug compared with alcohol, central stimulants, and opioids. However, the potential long-term hazardous effects of cannabis with regard to psychosis seem to have been overlooked, and there is a need to warn the public of these dangers, as well as to establish a treatment to help young frequent cannabis users."

Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal substance in most countries, including the United Kingdom and the United States. Up to 20 percent of young people say they use the drug at least once a week or report using it more than 100 times.

cannabis can lead to schizophrenia

Check with any cool group of youngsters busy blowing rings of smoke at any of the snazzy hangouts around you, and chances are that they will tell you of their experiments with marijuana. If you term it a drug, they will be ready to come to its defence, calling it ‘just the done thing’.

Marijuana, hash, grass, weed, charas, ganja. They are all forms of cannabis, officially termed a soft drug. Unofficially, as most of its users in the age-group 15-35 will tell you, it is the safest drug, actually less harmful than alcohol and smoking.

Thanks to this myth, the usage of cannabis in its various forms has been increasing, in particular among youngsters who are also habitual smokers.

However, the comfortable notion of the ‘safety’ of this soft drug was punctured recently when the journal Lancet published a comprehensive study proving that cannabis usage increases the risk of schizophrenia by 40 per cent, as compared to non-users. And not only are long-term users at risk, for even one-time usage ups the risk of getting the debilitating disease.

This study takes away the ‘cool’, ‘hip’ and ‘harmless’ tags of cannabis and replaces them with ‘psychosis’, ‘delusions’ and ‘amotivation’. The study says that 14 per cent of schizophrenic patients would not have the disease today, if they had not been cannabis users when aged between 15-34.

For the medical community, the study has come as no surprise. Dr Sameer Malhotra, Delhi-based psychiatrist and psychotherapist with special interest in drug de-addiction, says, This connection between cannabis usage and schizophrenia has been researched for long. The negative symptoms in schizophrenia are similar to those seen in long-term cannabis users.

Cannabis is cool, it’s just another smoke

Most 20-somethings pooh-pooh the facts, or they simply don’t know them to begin with. “A number of my friends who start with cigarettes go on to try cannabis as well, it’s sort of natural, isn’t it?” says Akshay, a DU student who himself moved on to trying cannabis this way. His informal take is seconded by Dr Malhotra. “Approximately one-third of people who smoke go on to experiment with cannabis,” he tells us.
“I started smoking MJ (marijuana, for the uninitiated) in my college canteen, before that I only used to smoke,” says 23-year-old Bhaskar, a budding rock musician. He adds, “That’s where we used to make music, me and our college band. All my seniors in the band used to do grass or MJ and they all felt music sounded ‘real’ after it. That’s when I did it too, and the calm that comes over you cannot be described. Now I have moved on to hard drugs.

That’s no surprise, since cannabis is also considered to be a ‘gateway drug’, as its abusers later dabble with chemical and other hard drugs. “But I don’t hold cannabis responsible for my experiments with hard drugs. In fact the out-of-body experiences that I have enjoyed after doing cannabis are unbelievable. You can hear things others around you can’t and your sense of touch is heightened,” says 22-year-old management student Anuprit Sinha. We leave her worried after we reveal that her ‘high’ is similar to symptoms of schizophrenia.

But your mind could go up in smoke too

Doctors dismiss the perception that cannabis is safer than alcohol. Says psychiatrist Samir Parikh, “Cannabis is as unsafe as any other habit-forming drug. It causes psychological dependence, leads to chemical changes in the users’ brain, can cause human errors like outbursts and accidents and affects memory and intelligence.” For long-term users, the harm goes beyond this. “Cannabis gets deposited in our body’s fatty issue. Its effects are very similar to that of schizophrenia – the user is in a state of acute intoxication, he/she tends to lose motivation, suffers from delusions and mood swings, hallucinates and loses touch with reality,” explains Malhotra. Experts are unanimous that this ‘cool’ drug can leave its users scarred in the long term.

The global debate

In the UK, one in five youngsters report using cannabis at least once a week, some of them being heavy users. A fifth of Britain’s youth, so to say, is today ‘on cannabis’.

The British government has been deliberating over reclassifying cannabis as a Category B drug. In that category, possession of cannabis will lead to a jail sentence. On the other side of the legal spectrum is the Netherlands, where coffee shops are allowed to sell cannabis for personal use.

The Dutch drug policy is based on the general principle of self-determination in matters of the body. In other words, it is not illegal to hurt yourself.

Also, because of lenient laws, the percentage of people seeking voluntary help for their problems with cannabis use has increased. British policymakers are also forwarding this example to keep cannabis away from becoming illegal.

Prof Robin Murray of Britain’s Institute of Psychiatry, an expert on cannabis-induced psychosis, has said, Politicians tend to think reclassification is important. It isn’t.

Fourteen-year-olds smoking cannabis have no idea of the difference between B and C. It’s already illegal for them anyway. What is needed is education about the risks.”

Any form of smoke is bad for the lungs, but Marijuana is not as bad as tobacco. The goverment scientists are going to say that it is worse, think about it.

Like someone said above, anything you smoke will cause damage to the lungs. haha, its funny reading some responses in here. You can tell the ones that smoke and dont like reading articles like this.

But really... all the pollution in big cities and 2nd hand smoke probably equals the damage done by smoking 1 or 2 joints per day

It says it right there in your quote:

However, in this study, people who smoked only cannabis were not found to suffer from emphysema, a serious and crippling lung disease which was previously thought to be linked to the drug.

As soon as i read the poll, I knew this was a bias thread. I've done research and can say that cigs are honestly worst for yall and that who ever created this thread isnt posting both sides of the issue.
