Just because marijuana doesn’t hurt your lungs (and the latest 20-year study shows that not only does it not damage lungs, but it increases lung capacity), don’t assume that the same applies to tobacco.
Cigarettes and cigars are bad news for your health. One in five deaths in the United States is tobacco related, making smoking the leading cause of preventable death.
You don’t even have to smoke to be in danger from tobacco, either: An estimated 50,000 deaths per year are due to secondhand smoke.
