Smoking anything isn't ideal I mean, it's smoke into your lungs. Respiratory hazards of smoke are due to toxic by-products of combustion, not the active ingredients in the plant. These are also known as cannabinoids. Today we're going to break down the pros and cons of smoking marijuana vs vaporizing it.
Vaporizing marijuana emits a vapor that is 95% smoke and carcinogen free. Vaporizers heat a substance to a precise temperature releasing active ingredients in vapor form without ever igniting the substance.

With the rise in eCigs both in popularity and alternative to smoking regular cigarettes it was only a matter of time before the jails began seeing the benefit. With the devices popping up in over a dozen states such as Ohio, Illinois, South Carolina and even Texas, these smokeless devices are proving to be a very beneficial alternative to the unhealthy habit of smoking traditional cigarettes.
Jail officials say the benefits far outweigh any potential problems or health risks as they say they calm agitated inmates, decrease traditional cigarette contraband and have even brought in more revenue for the jails. Considering most jails are actually banning tobacco burning cigarettes, the inmates who smoke are going thru nicotine withdrawal and are becoming agitated and short tempered. "We've seen big improvement in behavior, with less arguments and fights" said James Frye, chief deputy of the Shelby County Sheriff's Office in Sidney of eastern Ohio.
The main goal of this was to cut down on people sneaking in cigarettes and loose tobacco says Maj. Mitch Stanley whom is the center director.
Cigarettes have been banned by most prisons, because the cigarettes are used in the place of money and not to mention them being bad for their health. It is hard to replace cigarettes as payment or barter in prisons. I mean, what exactly are you doing in prison? reading books, physical training, drugs and fights. It's unrealistic to think that prisoners would be exchanging books to each other "in a perfect world yes but thats not the case", so they probably are going to trade with narcotics and cigarettes as they always have, it is safer than cigarettes we all know that.

We've reached a turning point in our country where marijuana use is starting to become the norm. Legalizing it has already happened but only certain types in most places such as edibles, thc pills and vaporizers will all be considered to be ok. We've heard a lot of news about eCigarettes and how they're better for ya than smoking actual cigarettes but how about with weed?
A raw cannabis plant has over 100 cannabinoid different cannabinoid which are chemical compounds that bind to the cannabinoid receptors in your brain cells. One of those is THC which is what's responsible to the psychotropic effects of smoking weed. Then there are others like CBD that give you a body high without all the mental fogginess. Depending on where it's grown a cannabis plant will naturally contain anywhere from 4-65% THC and products with a high THC content like hash dont actually need heat in order to be activated as you can experience their effects by simply eating them. It's just that heating them makes them even more potent.
When you smoke weed you're using an open flame which is a high heat and that combustion process activates the THC so when you inhale it the alveoli lining your lungs will deliver it to your bloodstream, thats why you feel the effects of marijuana it almost immediately. Vaporizers on the other hand use a process called conduction heating where either the raw or an extract of the plant has direct contact with the heat source but without the open flame. Using a lower temp and heating it up just enough to vaporize the THC that way you feel the effects of it but without the all the health problems that come along with smoking.
