Pot smokers have more gum disease
from Dentistry Today
A long-term study of approximately 1,000 New Zealanders from birth to the age of 38 has found that people who have smoked marijuana for up to 20 years have more gum disease but otherwise do not show worse physical health than nonsmokers. The researchers assessed a dozen measures of physical health, including lung function, systemic inflammation and several indicators of metabolic syndrome, including waist circumference, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, glucose control and body mass index.
