Secondhand Smoke from Marijuana: What You Need to Know

Updated: Feb 12, 2022

Did you know that marijuana secondhand smoke can be just as harmful as tobacco smoke? In fact, a study published in the journal "Pediatrics" found that exposure to secondhand marijuana smoke increases the risk of respiratory problems in children. If you are a parent, it is important to be aware of this danger and take steps to protect your children from it. In this Cannaquit blog post, we will discuss the dangers of marijuana secondhand smoke and provide some tips for protecting your family.

Marijuana secondhand smoke contains many of the same harmful chemicals as tobacco smoke. These chemicals can cause respiratory problems, such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. They can also increase the risk of asthma attacks and other respiratory illnesses. Children are especially vulnerable to these risks, since their lungs are still developing.

If you are a marijuana smoker, it is important to take steps to protect your family from secondhand smoke. Here are some key tips:

  • Don't smoke weed in the presence of children.

  • If you must smoke, do so outside and away from windows and doors.

  • Keep your smoking area clean and free of debris.

  • Make sure your children don't play in or around smoking areas.

  • Use an air purifier to remove harmful chemicals from the air.

  • Educate your children about the dangers of secondhand marijuana smoke.

By following these tips, you can help protect your family from the harmful effects of marijuana secondhand smoke.
