The agruments againsts cigs is that it causes lung cancer, emphysema, heart issues, it stinks, etc. Can the exact same things not be said about pot? I've never smoked either, so I don't know, but cigarettes are socially unacceptable, yet pot is socially cool. Why? Thanks

Because you don't smoke pot 20 times a day or more, unless you have a problem.

I don't care if people do either one, but I think both should be reasonably regulated.

Marijuana actually has more tar in it and can damage your lungs even more than smoking. However, the amount of pot one smokes is drastically less than the number of cigarettes a person will smoke in any given day.

I honestly don't know why one would be cool and not the other, maybe b/c you can get stoned or high on pot and not on cigs. Cigs really serve no purpose. They used to be cool, and now they're not so much, so maybe pot will go that way, too. Not really sure since I don't hang out with a lot of people who do either.

Me neither, but we're in the minority. Pot is very hip and trendy, but doesn't it have the exact same health risks that cigarettes do? yet pot is cool and cigs are not cool. Why?

Assuming you smoke pot instead of consuming it in other ways.

Tobacco tea is deadly while MJ tea is soothing. Smoking anything from tobacco to wood smoke is harmful, so just don't smoke.
