Parents Talking About P-o-t

Talking to children about drugs is definitively not an easy or fun thing to do, but being armed with facts always helps. A study published this July is offering new reasons for abstaining from marijuana.

Medical Research Institute of New Zealand found smoking one cannabis joint is as harmful to the lungs as smoking five cigarettes. The researchers found that smoking cannabis "damaged both the lungs’ small fine airways, used for transporting oxygen, and the large airways, which blocked air flow".
