Marijuana and Asthma
by: Ned Wicker

Hello,

Your son may have a claim. Some web sites, promoting marijuana's legalization, say that small amounts of marijuana can actually help asthmatic patients.

However, prolonged use can also cause asthmatic symptoms, according to other sources. It seems that there can be a short-term benefit, but long-term harm. Marijuana contains other toxins in the smoke, so it has its own set of issues. The debate wages on, but any type of smoking seems unlikely to be "good" for the lungs.

It would probably be much more effective to go to a doctor and get more standard treatments for his symptoms. Also, marijuana is addictive and so prolonged use is likely to cause many other issues.

Hope that answers your question.

My son says that he vaporizes it then it is not smoke. Is that correct and does not harm the lungs. I know that the sites that promote marijuana have there own agenda, therefore I would like to know of other sites that are medically sound and do not have a agenda.
