Not exactly sure how you equate marijuana to tobacco, though, other than they fact that both are plants that can be smoked. That's pretty much where the similarities end.
Let me guess... you've never smoked either one?
The government is trying to kill off tobacco companies through excessive taxation, free market be damned. I was comparing tobacco to marijuana as both are health risks. I'm sure marijuana can't be any better for a person's lungs than tobacco.
And yes, I have smoked both. Cigarettes for 7 years... started at 15 and quit when I was 22....and marijuana occasionally as a teen. Never really got into marijuana that much, as it never really did any thing for me...
