smoke blunts and get high...hell no it doesnt kill brain cells, i smoke weed all day, everyday and get A's in school. jus make sure to take breaths between tokes! gotta get that fresh o2

No. The study that attempted to spread this false idea that marijuana kills brain cells was horribly botched and part of a smear campaign against hemp. The "experiment" was essentially suffocating monkeys with marijuana smoke (they were hooked up to masks for extremely long periods of time and received no oxygen thusly). Suffocation kills brain cells, THC does not. There is actually some evidence to suggest that marijuana is beneficial to the health of neurons.

What good does weed smoking does to the body?

Honestly It doesn't do anything. Some people might try to tell you that smoking weed will kill brain cells but it doesn't although while you are high you do loose brain cells but once your high goes away, you become back to normal. And when you are high you tend to get the munchies, and If you eat too much it could possible cause you to gain weight (not good).
