CANADIANS HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT CANNABIS.
IF IT'S A PLANT, HOW CAN IT BE HARMFUL?
DR. MARK WARE ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, FAMILY MEDICINE AND ANESTHESIA Nature is full of plants that contain compounds
that can be quite dangerous, if they're not used carefully, or properly,
or depending on dose. Cannabis is no different.
It does have risks associated with it.
DR. AMY PORATH DIRECTOR, RESEARCH AND POLICY We know that when people are smoking cannabis,
that there are implications for their lung health,
similarly to tobacco smoke.
Cannabis contains compounds which can affect mental health,
can affect physical health, in very important ways
depending on how you use it, when you use it,
how old you are when you use it.
So, just because its natural doesn't necessarily mean that it's safe.
