Hi Dear.
There is no doubt that smoking is injurious to health.You must stop smoking because Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body. Smoking causes many diseases and reduces the health of smokers. But you also do smoking along with marijuana,It contains chemicals called cannabinoids that affect the central nervous system.Many may not have severe marijuana side effects from taking the drug but many people will. Marijuana side effects include physical problems like breathing difficulties and deteriorating physical abilities. Despite a popular belief, marijuana side effects speed up the heart, blood and breathing rate. it does not effect too much to your liver. You are telling that you had been also problem oF jaundices. In case of Jaundice smoking along with marijuana would be dangerous to your health.
