I thought this side would be much higher. Yes. A weed joke.

Do the risks associated with flooding your lungs with carcinogens excite you?

Side: Hell, no!

Never understood why so much hate for smoking but no hate for alcohol. An alcohol addiction hurts others a lot more than a smoking addiction, especially if you have public smoking bans (no secondhand smoke).

Alcohol also leads to long term health issues (like smoking) as well as issues like DUIs, domestic violence, alcohol poisoning.

Not even sure why young people have spent so much time and money rallying against smoking when For those aged 5–34 in the United States, motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death, claiming the lives of 18,266 Americans each year

This doesn't even include other alcohol related deaths such as unintentional injury deaths, alcohol poisoning, assaults, etc.

Both my parents smoked and I started when I was 19. 20 a day. I stopped when I was 26.

I didn't realise that I had taste buds until I stopped. Food tasted so different and my clothes didn't smell of cigarette smoke any more.

That was a long time ago and I haven't had one since. I had a persistent cough which slowly disappeared and afterwards I didn't get so many chest infections in winter that I used to.

Nope. Nasty habit. Unless it's all natural.... if you know what I mean.

Side: Hell, no!

Tobacco plants contain high levels of nicotine. If you touch a tobacco plant barehanded, you could get nicotine poisoning.

Even without commercial additives, tobacco still contains ~50 different types of carcinogens.

No worries. Medical science is actually not as advanced as most people believe. There are more carcinogens in marijuana smoke than tobacco smoke; however, commercial tobacco smokers have a 20 times greater chance of getting cancer while marijuana smokers did not present with any elevation in cancer risk.

So... there is only statistical proof that commercial cigarettes cause cancer. No statistical proof for pure tobacco smoke or marijuana smoke. There are many detectable carcinogens in the smoke of all three.

Good luck.

Side: Guilty as charged.

Oh. Forgot to mention. Since Marijuana smoke has more harmful substances, it damages the lungs more. The higher burning point, deeper inhalation, and subsequent holding of the smoke in the lungs means far greater damage than tobacco smoke.

No statistically proven link to cancer, but it is statistically proven to cause many respiratory disorders.

Side: Guilty as charged.

Cancer doesn't have to be the only thing that makes it a nasty habit. It makes you smell terrible. Changes the color of your teeth. Massive coughing. There are plenty of things that make it nasty.

I never said anything about smoking marijuana. Especially when you can bake it in brownies and avoid the respiratory issues.

I am not a smoker. This is so because if you smoke you can die early, and who wants that to happen. Smoking releases bad gases that can go in your lungs and stay in there for a very long time making it very hard to breathe. Don't smoke!

Side: Hell, no!

I don't spend a dollar to flavor my tongue with a drop of poison,or hurt my nose with an air of suffocation.

Side: Hell, no!

I could never touch a cancer stick. I believe it is more of a habit of the lower classes and the unintelligent.

Side: Hell, no!

EGAH! Never in all my years! NEVA! NEVA!

Side: Hell, no!

No, and I don't plan to smoke at any time in my life. Unless it was cannabis, in which would be monitored and would most likely be done with other people and not by myself.

Side: Hell, no!
