Cannabis exposure does not negatively impact the lungs in a manner consistent with tobacco, nor is it similarly linked to elevated rates of either COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or lung cancer, according a literature review published in the journal Addiction.https://www.yahoo.com/news/smoking-marijuana-could-lungs-more-143500075.html

To circle back to Temple University’s study, two potential explanations have been suggested by researchers: that youth use of marijuana declined and/or that societal attitudes towards weed shifted in favor of more acceptance. As evidenced by a large amount of data from Colorado, Washington and the entire nation, legal marijuana leads to lower youth use—because it loses its appeal as a taboo, because legal shops won’t sell to minors, unlike drug dealers, and because the population can better understand and react to problematic patterns of cannabis consumption. But, in addition to that, it seems likely that society is in fact slowly adopting a more open-minded stance when it comes to marijuana and not sending teenagers to drug rehab for small-time marijuana use. The most dangerous thing about marijuana is that it is illegal, and this snapshot of nearly a decade of legal weed in Colorado and Washington is that of two states that were appeased thanks to cannabis reform.
