Researchers identify more than 100 toxic chemicals in cannabis smoke
https://medicalxpress.com/news/2020-06-t...nabis.html

Quote:University of Alberta engineering researchers have characterized the potentially hazardous particles in cannabis smoke and have raised awareness about their potential health effects.

"It's not out of line to say there's potential health risk in marijuana smoke, and there's not nearly enough research," said Robert Nishida, a U of A post-doctoral fellow and co-lead on the study.

Among the billions of particles found in a single puff of cannabis smoke, Nishida's team observed 2,575 chemical compounds and was able to identify 536. Of those, 110 are known to be toxic, whether they be carcinogenic, mutagenic or teratogenic, which are chemicals that can interfere with the development of the embryo or fetus.

Quelle fucking surprise. Deadpan Coffee Drinker Inhaling any kind of smoke is hazardous. Not gigging you, by the way. Just saying that I'm not surprised at all by this finding.

Ever see the list of side effects for common prescription meds? 

Here's an example.

Well, half a century of cannabis consumption hasn't killed me yet, I think I'll enjoy it a while longer before I succumb to the evil effects and die.

I have first hand experience with those since my father abused his prescription meds.

Without some quantification of the amounts, this is useless. As Fireball noted, you're inhaling smoke for Christ's sake, what do you expect?

Never smoked it.  One time when I was about 11 a friend and I dared each other to smoke a cigar. We both ended up getting sick to our stomach so I've never smoked anything since.   My daughter cooked up some heavily laced brownies for a D & D party she was having and offered me a couple.  She and her friends were having a glorious time but it did nothing for me at all.  I don't get what all the fuss is about.   Dunno

Once I was in the hospital long enough for my physical dependence on nicotine to have passed. First chance I got, I lit up. It made me nauseated, but I kept puffing away.

I have first hand experience with those since my father abused his prescription meds.

I recall a bit that Jay Leno did on The Tonight Show years ago where all he did was run a drug commercial with a timer.  The alleged benefits of the drug in question took about 17 seconds and the potential side effects took the remaining 43 seconds of the minute.

Indeed.    [the] estimate agrees within uncertainty with total particulate matter (TPM) measurements
of fresh smoke also collected, which shows smoking a marijuana joint produces roughly 3.4 (±0.6)
times more TPM
than smoking a tobacco cigarette following the same puff routine.

And it's the particulate matter that fucks your lungs.  I should know; I have mild (luckily) emphysema.     Sad

I'm more interested in hearing what problems there may be with vaping. I only ever vape at around 180C.

There is a degree of false equivalency here though.  Plenty of smokers will go through a pack a day.  Who smokes twenty joints a day?

I don't find it that unbelievable that some weed smokers smoke 20 joints a day.

I call it ironic since the story just hit a few moments ago.

We've had lots of salad recalls....for e-coli and other infestations.  But the cops keep wanting to lock people up for weed because it is a lucrative scam for the whole prison industrial complex.

Salad?  Who cares?

Twenty joints a day has got to be around a quarter-ounce a day even if you're rolling thin.

In college I had roommates who smoked a pack a day or more.  Our resident pot-head would be sound asleep after a few puffs.  Personally I never smoked either so I'm no expert.

Even the heaviest smokers I know get three or so days out of a quarter. Plus, a quarter-ounce a day is $$$ ...
