Is second hand marijuana smoke harmful to children?
yes. marijuana has far less harmful chemicals but up to 5 times as much tar as tobacco. ---------------------------
Marijuana has recently (June, 2009) been added to the Proposition 65 list of chemicals known to the state of Calfornia to cause cancer. Second-hand marijuana smoke contains 50% to 70% more harmful chemicals than tobacco smoke. See http://oehha.ca.gov/Prop65/docs_state/mjcrnr061909.html
Children can be affected differently than adults. While large doses of THC act as a CNS depressant, lower levels of THC can act as a stimulant, so kids can go around talking incessantly when exposed to a parent's smoke. Teenagers' mood swings can get worse, and some kids become forgetful, angry, or violent after having been in a smoke-filled party room.
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.
I dont believe second hand Marijuana does anything bad to the baby when you are pregnant. Second hand smoke from Tobacco is infinitely worse for you than second hand Marijuana.
No, marijuana second hand smoke is less harmful for you than tobacco smoke. Marijuana smoke does not contain the deadly carcinogens that cigarette smoke does. I heard on a documentary that there aren't any known cases of marijuana smoke alone causing lung cancer or emphysema. If someone is smoking weed around you then you don't really have anything to worry about.
Second hand smoke does present some health risk.
No it has alot less carcinogens if it was blown in your mouth. BUT marijuana has THC which kills cancer cells so no cancer and virtually no tar because the lungs of the person smoking it inhaled it. Improved answer Yes second hand marijuana smoke is harmful. Its harmful to the lungs and the fact that its a drug period with consequences. It can harm your pets and children. I have not seen any cases… Read More
It's not as bad as second hand smoke from cigarettes, but it's still pretty unhealthy, especially for an infant.
Yes... Any second hand smoke or smoke in it's own is harmful to a child... NOT just marijuana smoke but any type if smoke at all can cause breathing difficulties, asthma, pneumonia, respiratory problems and so on... Frequent exposure will most likely cause at least one of these issues... Tobacco smoke is very bad, (even second hand mixed with marijuana) not only can it cause one of the above problems, but can also cause cancer… Read More
What is the least damaging smoke to breathe in and I know all smoke is harmful but which is the least harmful?
You are correct all smoke is harmful, but between these too, cigarettes and marijuana. Marijuana is least harmful.I hope this has helped you.
Smoke of any kind can be harmful. Vaporizing marijuana as opposed to smoking a Marijuana Cigarette (joint, blunt, etc..) has been shown to be less harmful as the plant matter is not actually burned.
Marijuana is harmless. It will have no Ill effect.
Yes, it is. It is harmful for anyone to smoke marijuana as it is a drug. Marijuana do even more harm to pregnant women as it can disable the baby, or cause miscarriages or death.
More harmful? Marijuana isn't too harmful as it is besides the fact you smoke it. In vest in a vaporizer and you won't have to deal with 'harm'.
This question is very vague. However, marijuana smoke is not harmful to anyone therefore is not abusive in any way. If a caregiver wishes to smoke marijuana, they should either obtain permission from the one they are caring for, or step outside for a moment to smoke.
Not a good idea to find out
All smoke that you put into your lungs is harmful to them, But marijuana is definitely one of the least harmful things you could be inhaling.
Half as the same for 1st hand smokers
Marijuana has 3x as much tar as tobacco. Tar is what tends to cause lung cancer.
Depending on the potency of the marijuana and the consistency of the second hand smoke, it is possible though.
Seeing as first hand marijuana smoke has no negative side effects, it's second hand smoke is not at all dangerous.
yes and thousands of other harmful chemicals
Marijuana is not physically addictive, so, there are no physical withdrawal symptoms. Marijuana does in fact for many people have withdrawal symptoms. Anxiety, headaches, and anger are just a few of the symptoms. I have witnessed children getting high from second hand marijuana smoke pets also. Marijuana has increased in potency over the last 10 years. I know I have smoked it most of my life. I am 42 days clean and have first hand… Read More
Of course. The smoke from all organic material is harmful to all biological creatures.
Yes, second hand crack smoke is harmful to pets in the same way it is harmful to humans.
marijuana smoking's most harmful effect is the tar you inhale every time you smoke it but that can be replace by smoking out of a vaporizer because all the vaporizer does is turns the THC into steam.
Probably yes, any second hand smoke marijuana or tobacco is not good for a baby.
how to smoke marijuana
Marijuana has no negative effects.
You'll probably find things allot easier.
this can happen from being around people who smoke it, and inhaling the second hand smoke.
Second hand smoke..
Second hang marijuana smoke will doubtfully show up on a urine test anyway(unless you passed out in a burning marijuana field for hours), and definitely not a week later.
If they willingly except to second hand smoke, then yes. If they don't like to second hand smoke, then no.
You are supposed to set the example.
Your best bet to pass a marijuana test is to not smoke marijuana; also avoid spending time at parties where other people are smoking marijuana, where you will inhale second hand smoke.
nothing, in fact marijuana is good for asthma
Yes (if you get enough second hand smoke), and Yes (to the second question).
If you don't smoke marijuana, the second hand smoke will likely make you feel very slightly high but will not actually enter your system.
Yes it does, just the same as second hand smoke from a cigarette. They're both smoke and you can breath them both in.
Second-hand smoke does not affect chlamydia treatment. This is true of both cigarette and marijuana smoke.
Second hand smoke is just as harmful as if you were the one smoking the cigarette. It will effect your lungs, heart, and can cause cancer.
Yes, you can feel affects of second hand smoke.
It's mostly people who smoke marijuana throughout the world. Most studies place dogs at a close second.
Nothing happens, you get high. Marijuana is NOT physically addicting, there have been NO reported deaths from using marijuana. Cigarettes are far more harmful than weed.
Yes. Any kind of smoke inhalation can be a health hazard.
It is possible to test positive for marijuana use purely from second-hand exposure.
Yes you can, there are no harmful side effects. I do it all the time.
Marijuana is harmful when smoked because you are inhaling smoke, which harms your lungs. Also it can slow your thinking down and make it harder to be productive (FOR SOME PEOPLE, NOT EVERYONE) Other then that marijuana is as harmful as anything else, too much a good thing will always end badly.
Do not believe what you are told in schools. The most harmful thing about marijuana is the actual "smoking" part of it. Smoke is never good for your body. If you consume it through edibles, or vaporize it, there are no negative qualities. It is the least harmful substance on planet earth.
Because it is weed, and weed is good for your health.
Any form of "smoking" is bad for your health, so No is one answer. You werent very specific but if your talking about cigarettes then yes they are more harmful than marijuana. One because there is no "nicotine" in marijuana and two because there are many harmful substances that are in cigarettes and no extra substances in marijuana. Correction: Marijuana is more dangerous than smoking. It contains more carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) than cigarette smoke. For… Read More
