Can smoking cannabis cause cancer

Answer - MD

Unlike tobacco, there have been no definitive studies linking smoked cannabis with lung cancer. (Although there is definitely a higher risk for those who smoke both tobacco and marijuana.) Keep in mind any type of smoke contains multiple carcinogens and carbon monoxide, and your lungs are not designed to inhaled anything that is on fire, so avoiding combusted products is generally a smart move.
