Does Smoking Marijuana Cause Lung Cancer?

We all know we’re not supposed to smoke cigarettes – the correlation between smoking and lung cancer is clear. But we live in a society that perpetuates the idea that smoking weed is not as harmful, or not harmful at all.

Dr. Raja Flores, Chairman of the Department of Thoracic Surgery for the Mount Sinai Health System, has a drastically different view on the subject.

In an exclusive video recently published on SurvivorNet, the new definitive source for information about cancer from the world’s leading doctors and cancer centers, Dr. Flores weighs in on why he believes smoking marijuana has a direct correlation with lung cancer. **

He says:
“There is no real good population-based study that looks at marijuana smoking and that has had enough time elapsed to show its associated with lung cancer, [but] I’ve seen it. I’ve seen multiple, multiple cases of it. I see it every day,” Dr. Flores says.

Dr. Flores predicts that once marijuana becomes an accepted part of American culture, the risks associated with smoking will become more clear. “What you’re going to see going down the line is the reincarnation of the whole tobacco disaster,” he says. “I see it now already.”

Due to the excitement surrounding the legalization of both medical pot and recreational pot, the lack of studies on the issue makes sense. This is a multi-billion dollar industry, and a lot of people stand to make a lot of money off of marketing marijuana. “Big business and the money influence is taking precedence over the health issues,” Dr. Flores warns.
