Not at all. It actually reduces the speed of the spread of cancer cells

No, it isn't harmful. You are still taking smoke into your lungs, which is never "healthy" but it's not harmful, either.

But, please, only start smoking if you actually want to. Don't let others pressure you into it. Personally, I do not like being high, and I feel even worse if I smoke because someone else wants me to. To each their own, but make your own call. If someone is pressuring you, they aren't worth it.

Uhh, very ! Marijuana is a very bad drug that can lead to other drugs you can get lung cancer and u can actually for the first time you smoke and second off its nasty people who smoke get nasty teeth and sin and it's just gross and I think if y want to smoke weed maybe you should do some real research because you seem to be very ignorant in this topic u would double think this this could ruin your whole life ..

Any kind of smoke contains carcinogens and a marijuana cigarette has no filter. If you smoke it a lot you will develop a chronic cough and you will probably hack up loogies all the time. I wouldn't recommend it.

Weed, hence marijuana, is illegal. Yes, it is harmful, it affects your thinking patterns and concentration ability. Here is a link to a website telling you what marijuana does to you. http://alcoholism.about.com/od/pot/a/effects.-Lya.htm

How could sucking smoke from burning vegetation be good for your lungs ?
Chemotherapy does not kill 70% of patients.
Weed does not cure 70$ of patients.
You can believe a person who spent 13 years in higher education
to become a cancer chemotherapy specialist,
or you can believe Thomas who has zero years of oncology training.
It is true people like to believe the answers they like.
Pot heads like to believe they are doing the right thing.

No it does not, in fact it has been PROVEN in medical studies that the actual act of smoking may cause cancer, not marijuana. Weed isnt bad for you honestly it eases the mind at stressful times and I personally use it for my knee after a torn ligament. It's safer than those prescription pain killers and is not addictive. You can quit whenever you want.
