I believe that marijuana is much less harmful to the body than smoking cigarettes.
-first round is acceptance
-second is argument
-third is rebuttal
-fourth is closing arguments
I look forward to the debate.

Agree. That's why cigarettes can CAUSE various cancers, but people can smoke weed for MEDICAL reasons and it can help MORE than HURT someone with cancer. Besides that, it's HOW you smoke weed than can essentially determine if it hurts you or not. If you smoke weed while you always drink and smoke cigarettes, the weed is ignored and doesn't help you if you have all the bad those things going in. If you have only ever smoked weed and not with a hookah from cigarette companies but in a pipe you make like a water bottle one, you are simply inhaling nontoxic smoke above water. It's like going to a stove and heat is above the pot. The steam doesn't hurt your insides to inhale. But if you try to touch the steam, it'll just hurt your hand. It is HOW you take weed. If you hold your breath while smoking for way longer than necessary, you're hurting your lungs. You have to be smart with your substance. Everything CAN & will be abused by everyone. Good things do not last if you don't make it. I never heard someone saying cigarettes helped them look or feel younger or better. Weed helps with anxiety and stress and essentially mental or physical pain/suffering. Cigarettes cause more suffering with long term use and even those few times you can get addicted to nicotine. I never heard getting addicted to weed THC because you can stop if you wanted. People who smoke weed with blunt wraps are dumb because they are using a cigarette companies wraps that have traces of nicotine in it. That's why you shouldn't use wraps to smoke weed. Just natural paper and stuff not toxic to your body. Alcohol can be abused too. Even though you didn't mention it or simply cough syrup/medicine. Anything can be over used to be essentially bad for the person. But weed is something that can be done correctly and not hurt you as much as everything else people who are crazy come up with to hurt them. At the end of the day, people will do what they want.

you do realize this is an absolute losing battle. Every legitimate Lung, Health, Safety, etc. organization on the planet has confirmed 4x the harm from pot as compared to cigarettes.
