Cannabis smokers risk nicotine addiction

Cannabis smokers risk nicotine addiction
By Carol Nader
August 17, 2004

Regularly smoking cannabis can cause an addiction to nicotine in cigarette smokers who were previously not addicted, a study has found.

Teenagers who smoke cannabis daily for at least a month are four times more likely to become addicted to nicotine by the time they reach their 20s.

Weekly cannabis use increases the likelihood three-fold and monthly cannabis use doubles the risk of nicotine addiction, the study of 2500 young people discovered.

The findings are based on the Victorian Adolescent Health Cohort Study, conducted by George Patton and Susan Sawyer from the Royal Children's Hospital Centre for Adolescent Health and the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.

Professor Sawyer, director of the centre, said that for teenagers who smoked tobacco but showed no signs of nicotine addiction, a "powerful predictor" of subsequent nicotine dependence was cannabis use.

Professor Sawyer said that not only should we be concerned about cannabis use for all its negative effects, but we should also have real concerns that those using high levels of cannabis were much more likely to develop nicotine dependence, leading to a lifetime of illness.

The study's finding contravenes the traditional "gateway theory" that suggests drug use starts with tobacco then progresses to alcohol, cannabis and, finally, more illicit drugs. The study suggests a "reverse directionality".

"People are smoking tobacco at the same time (as cannabis) and are inadvertently getting high levels of nicotine, and it is the nicotine that they're co-smoking which is driving the nicotine addiction," Professor Sawyer said.

The study also found that female users of cannabis on a daily basis were eight times more likely to suffer high levels of depression than non-cannabis users.

The results will be presented today at a mental health conference at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Mental health experts at the conference yesterday said there was also a link between cannabis and psychosis.

David Castle, from the Mental Health Research Institute, said most people who became psychotic after using cannabis had an underlying vulnerability to mental disorders. But most people who used cannabis moderately or infrequently were unlikely to experience psychosis.

Wayne Hall, from Queensland University's Institute for Molecular & Bioscience, said 60 per cent of people in their 20s have used cannabis and 10 per cent of cannabis users developed a dependency on the drug.

The only time I've smoked tobacco at all was when there was an herb drought here a few years back.

If I would have had a steady legal herb hook up I wouldn't have started smoking cigarettes?

> Cannabis makes people enjoy the act of smoking

Cannabis doesn't make people enjoy smoking... Humans, for whatever reason, enjoy smoking... I remember sitting around the campfire as a kid smoking grape vine and blowing smoke rings... using your logic, grape vines make people enjoy smoking...

I first tried weed, and then I tried cigarettes. After almost puking after taking a puff off a cig, I have remained with weed and never tried smoking since.  :shrug:

I smoke pot regularly, yet the sight, the smell, even the very prescence of tobacco offends me. I refuse to date anyone who smokes tobacco, and I stay very far away from tobacco smokers when they are in the act or still stinking of it. I would rather saw down a redwood with a butter knife, than smoke a cigarette.

Woops didn't realize this thread was a dinosaur. I stumbled here by googling information on nicotine addiction, and I said "what the hey?" I'm a shroomery member, might as well knock myself out.

I'll smoke about a pack of cigarettes in a month. I really only enjoy it when I'm drunk. I dont feel any effects of an addiction and would quit as soon as I loose my buzz anyways, or if I ever felt the tendency to smoke out of habit.. I love smoking mj occasionally but it makes me anti social and its expensive..

I'd like to see a nicotine spray for cigarette smokers to spray on herb. If they had that I'd try to quit again using that.

I'll bet smoking weed out of a vaporizer cancels the effects found in the study.

I smoke weed on about a weekly basis, cigarettes about 3 or 4 times a month. I have yet to become addicted to either.
