Does secondhand marijuana smoke affect you?
The reported "contact highs" from secondhand marijuana smoke are almost certainly a placebo effect. It is difficult to get enough secondhand smoke to get a measurable amount of the active ingredient. In actual experiments, they had to lock people in a small closet and pump in so much smoke that they actually had to wear goggles to stay in the room before the people would test positive for marijuana. ---------------------
It does affect you, and part of that has to do with genetics. Some people don't seem to be affected much, but I am very sensitive to marijuana smoke and have gotten high from my neighbor's smoke. She smokes very strong pot, and I don't know if I'd test positive, but it certainly affected my driving. One time I took a benadryl and didn't know pot smoke was coming in, and the benadryl added to the effect of the pot, and I got much more sleepy than usual from taking a benadryl.
I'm allergic to marijuana, so I've gotten coughing and asthma from second-hand smoke, and also I get painful sores on my head when the neighbor smokes it. It gives me mood swings, then I smell her pot half an hour later. One time I was very, very tired from the marijuana smoke coming in, then when it wore off, my heart beat really fast for a couple of hours. After that, I read that a man in England had died from a heart attack after smoking marijuana, because it affects your heart rate when you smoke it and when it's wearing off. This kind of thing never happened to me in the 1960's, but maybe there's something in some new varieties that has been increased. There are at least 66 cannabinoids, and there isn't a lot of testing for them in the new varieties, just usually THC.
The book "Marijuana: What's a Parent to Believe," by Cermak describes its physiological effects.
not exactly an obvious question but i will answer what i know on the subject.
Is it harmful? arguably yes but in its pure form it has a low neuro-toxicity level and also very low cancer causing chemicals, if in a joint with tobacco the tobacco is far more harmful and more of a worry.
Will it get you high? it could in very large doses or in an enclosed space over time however a small amount is unlikely to cause any noticeable effects and anything a person feels from second hand smoke is usually a placebo effect brought on by an expectation of a feeling from being in close proximity to a drug.
Should you worry? in short no not really, whether inhaling 2nd hand cannabis smoke or producing it its unlikely to be an issue for you or other people.
The secondhand smoke from smoking marijuana can give you a buzz, known as a "contact high"
Almost certainly not. The minute amount of THC (the active component of marijuana) which one might ingest from secondhand smoke would not be enough to cause a positive result on a hair follicle-based drug screen.
Yes. Hence it is referred to as secondhand smoke; it has been used already.
Yes, secondhand smoke of any kind is harmful to children. You should not be smoking marijuana or cigarettes for that matter in the presence of children, or even at all; it shows horrible responsibility and lack of caring/respect. If you smoke marijuana in front of children they are going to get the effects of the marijuana as well.
Yes, you can feel affects of second hand smoke.
If you exposed your child to marijuana you should definatly go to jail! OK! I agree. My questions is: What signs would one look for if a toddler has been exposed to secondhand marijuana smoke. Behavior wise etc.
No. If marijuana caused cancer they wouldn't give it to cancer patients to save their lives. Marijuana cures cancer.
If you are within a short distance of someone smoking marijuana, there is a chance that you will get a secondhand high. Although most of the THC in marijuana is absorbed by the body when smoked, just like secondhand cigarette smoke, you can still be affected. However, if you are worried about being within a close vicinity of someone smoking marijuana, the most noticable aspect is the smell that can linger on clothing and in… Read More

No. Tests show that the person has to be confined in a small room with smoke so thick that they have to wear goggles to stay in the room before they will test positive. Major Studies of Drugs and Drug Policy - http://druglibrary.org/schaffer/Library/studies/studies.htm
yes! it is just as bad as secondhand smoking
If someone smokes and the person next to that person is breathing in that air, that's called secondhand smoke. If that person breaths in enough of the secondhand smoke, that person could be sick. Maybe even possibly die with A LOT of air from secondhand smoke!!
Second-hand smoke does not affect chlamydia treatment. This is true of both cigarette and marijuana smoke.
No. Although it's best to avoid carcinogens, the chemicals produced by lighting things on fire, marijuana has never been shown to effect pregnancy negatively. A study done in Jamaica even suggests that women who consumed marijuana while pregnant gave birth to children with higher IQ's than those who didn't. This is not permitted in the United States however.
Unless the exposure is very intense, the minute amount of THC ingested through second-hand smoke is usually not enough to show on a typical test.

No, secondhand smoke cannot exacerbate Autism. Autism is a neurological difference, secondhand smoke cannot change someones neurology. Although smoke may be especially unpleasant for some Autistic people due to sensory issues.
There would have to be a lot of second hand smoke, like, a completely milky room, or people continually blowing a shitton of smoke in your face. But if you just sat around while your friends were smoking bowls, you should be a-okay.
Yes if you take in enough smoke its the same as getting addicted to cigarettes from secondhand smoke. Either way if you're taking in enough smoke and it's within a month of your drug test, the THC will show up on the drug test.
Marijuana does not affect use of antibiotics.

Not unless the "secondhand smoke" is from you putting out a fire in a weed warehouse. The detection cutoff is set fairly high to keep someone who went to a rock concert from coming up hot.
Yes you will be affected by the second hand smoke, you may not get the affect of the drug.
Who ever thinks that's the smoke doesn't affect who they smoke around is dumb. Its called contact high.
Drowsiness, slow reaction time, slightly diluted pupils and overall a smug look on the baby's face.
