What are the long term effects of smoking non-filtered tobacco with marijuana?

I am trying to elaborate on an already asked question about smoking marijuana poppers. I ve been smoking marijuana in all forms for about 6 years now, if you are not familiar with a popper, it is a 1/4 inch piece of cigarette stuffed into a small metal cylinder which has marijuana stuffed on top, placed into a bong, and smoked in one simultaneous hit. I ve smoked them in the past but never as frequently as I do now. I have experienced a couple of interesting health issues and concerns since smoking them in abundance and was wondering if the poppers could be a result. I was just wondering if you personally knew anything on them and/or basic long term effects of smoking non-filtered tobacco with marijuana. As far as I know they originated in my city Toronto but they ve become increasingly popular in many other cities in Ontario, Canada.

Thanks for asking HCM

Marijuana is cannabis and Tobacco contains nicotine and a lot of other alkaloids. Both drugs when taken causes a little of brain stimulation followed by depression. Cannabis causes psychological dependence. When used with tobacco there are a lot of side effects as-
- First is increased risk of cancer of Lung, Throat, Food Pipe, Stomach and Urinary Bladder.
- Tobacco is a highly addicting substance and it may interfere with decision making, cognitive dysfunction etc side effects.
- Marijuana when mixed with tobacco may increase the risk of criminal behavior. It causes disinhibition which cause risk taking behavior, disturbance in driving etc.
- I will strongly advise you to please quit this habit and attend a good detoxification program.
