  • The impact of Cannabis on your lungs

    Posted on June 6th, 2012 TimB No comments

    In 2002, the British Lung Foundation published A  smoking gun?, summarising the evidence around the  impact of smoking cannabis on respiratory health.

    Ten years on, this report updates A smoking gun?, detailing the evidence published over the past decade.  About a third of adults in the UK have tried cannabis

    An estimated 2.2 million used cannabis in England and Wales during 2010 and 2011. Current evidence shows that smoking cannabis is  hazardous to our lungs.  We know far less about the  effects of cannabis smoke than the impact of tobacco  smoke. However, there is evidence that cannabis smoke  causes many adverse effects.  In the decade since the publication of the original A  Smoking Gun?, further research has started to reveal  important new information about the effects of smoking  cannabis on lung health. This report gives an overview of  the current evidence.
