Okay, so the thread title is a bit deceptive.

Man to smoke 115,000th joint

His throat must be extremely sore.

And why must his throat be sore? He claims to smoke 10 to 12 joints a day, this certainly would not cause a sore throat especially being marijuana. Also the fact that he's a smoker I would imagine his throat and lungs are fine as long as all he is smoking is cannabis. He states he was healthy.
I can't believe he doesn't get high though. His weed must be different or something. I know plenty of people who smoke reguraly including myself and I rarely don't feel anything. I have read somewhere that it's hard to build up a weed tolerance. Sure it takes some people more or better herb to get stoned but to smoke like he does and not feel anything seems crazy, not to mention it sucks for him.

Well, I was basing myself on the fact that one single smoke gets my throat dry and sore. Even worse when I smoke more than once in a day. I don't think it makes a difference if I, and him, smoke only pot. Smoke is smoke, and it's not very good for the throat and lungs.

Then again, I'm as far from a doctor as one can be.

Smoking tobacco is far worse for your lungs/throat than smoking marijuana.

Whatever, I don't want this moved to debates ;)

My little brother is always telling me that weed does nothing to hurt your lungs and that using marijuana can only be good for you! One study does show that marijuana smokers' lungs only deteriorate as fast as those that don't even smoke! I don't know where that study is, though. If someone could find it and post it, that would be great! If anyone wants to debate this, then it should be debated. I think this topic is long overdue.

There's nothing to debate. Smoking Marijuana responsibly is proven to be safe. There is no serious harmful effects before, during, or after consumption. You cannot overdose and it is not physically addictive.

This is like Global Warming man, one study says something, ten others say the contrary :P

I'm pretty sure that lungs are not meant to absorb plant/paper debris. (Or any debris...) This has to end up somewhere it's not supposed to. Furthermore, the friction caused by said debris going through to the lungs has to be more hurtful than the usual gaseous exchange you need to breathe...

Of course you could say we all breathe dust all the time anyway. Would this generate as much friction as pot particles in your throat? Would this be just as easy to eliminate once in the lungs?

I'm trying to make logic trump knowledge here, might not be too clever.
