Guilty.

Well, not right now, but I have had periods in my life where I smoked at LEAST that much.

Right now it's more like three joints a week.

Whoa, I looked at the article, and it's ridiculous.

Okay, it says that cannabis is more dangerous because of higher rates of THC. Of course, THC isn't the dangerous part.

Then, they say that three joints a day equals 20 cigarettes a day, which is pretty goofy, but absolutely ridiculous when they go on to say that cannabis contains 50% more tar than tobacco. If they did their math, they'd see that three joints a day equals 4.5 cigarettes. Morons.

You can find the British Lung Foundation report in PDF format.
In reply to:

It has been calculated that smoking 3-4 cannabis cigarettes a day is associated with the same evidence of acute and chronic bronchitis and the same degree of damage to the bronchial mucosa as 20 or more tobacco cigarettes a day.


Hope that clears things up. For more information on Marijuana smoke constituents look here.

Funny side note, if you look at the references between the BLF and the chart on Erowid they are partially the same.  BLF's reference list is quite a bit more extensive.  One question I wasn't able to find the the BLF report is what part of the Marijuana plant was tested for smoke constituents.  I have seen one before that compaired Tobacco leaves to Marijuana leaves when any good stoner knows it's the buds that get smoked most often  :grin:

Everyone knows that putting any kind of smoke into your lungs is bad for you... Duh... Pot smoke is not in any way healthy but common, it aint that bad...
