Dangers of Marijuana Use
Cancer is one of the dangers associated with the consistent and long term use of marijuana. Chronic users are at a greater risk for developing cancers of the lungs and respiratory tract than those in the general population. This is due to the carcinogens and other irritants found in marijuana smoke.
Marijuana smoke, to many people’s surprise, has between 50-70% more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than those found in tobacco smoke. It also contains a great deal of a certain enzyme which converts hydrocarbons into carcinogenic forms.
Another danger is associated with how marijuana is consumed. Individuals who smoke it tend to inhale more deeply than do tobacco smokers. They also hold their breath longer as well. This exposes them to more carcinogen-filled smoke and puts them at greater risk for developing cancer.
The THC found in marijuana is also problematic. It weakens the immune system which makes it harder for the body to stave off infectious diseases as well as cancer.
