Thanks for writing to us.
White hairs are more likely to be associated with poor nutrition , exposure to dust, genetic factors, etc rather than smoking pot. It increases the concentration of drug in the hair follicles and reduces their growth and compromises the quality.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
