How much tar is there in one joint compared to one cigarette? I've heard all types of numbers but have also read that the bud of a cannabis plant contains only 33% the amount of tar as a tobacco plant. Does this mean these comparisons are faulty because they are comparing the leaf of the cannabis plant to the leaf of the tobacco plant even though we smoke the bud?

Sorry if that was confusing haha

I used to smoke a pack a day for about 2 years then I quit.

Tobacco definitely made me cough EVERYDAY whereas marijuana makes me cough everyday from toking. :)

Let me put it like this.
Weed is good.
Cigs are bad.

Because there is no filter in a joint there is a lot more tar then there is in a cig. Its not really about the tar content its how much is being inhaled when your talking about health. Regardless of this in the long run a cig will make you cough more.

Well I am fucking high but I will try to explain this shit.

Cannabis does not contain the extra shit that is thrown in cigarettes. Also cannibis is a bronchial dialator, while tobacco constricts them. This means that tar gets stuck in your lungs while you smoke cigs but the tar gets expelled when you smoke weed. Cannibis also is proven to contain things which slow the production of tumors in the lungs.

Basically weed is one of the best things to smoke on this planet, and tobacco is one of the worst.

No matter what anyone or anything ever informs you, cigarettes should not be smoked.

Fucking disgusting pointless bullshit.

Would a bong remove all or most of the tar?

US Surgeon General C Everett Koop stated on national television in 1990 that tobacco radiation is probably responsible for 90% of tobacco-related cancers.8 Dr RT Ravenholt, former director of World Health Surveys at the Centers for Disease Control, has stated that "Americans are exposed to far more radiation from tobacco smoke than from any other source.

Theres a few source's but i copied and pasted it from here,
Radioactive tobacco
