Good to know. The problem is that:
a) most people smoke cannabis *and* tobacco, not just in the sense
that they may have tobacco cigarettes and cannabis cigarettes, but
that they routinely mix dry tobacco, since it burns better, with their
hashish or marijuana;
b) inhaling "smoke", as in the product of combustion, is hardly ideal
in health terms irrespective of what is burnt.

OTOH, I have just learned that when you "smoke" crack or freebase
cocaines what you actually inhale is not smoke at all, but simply
vapours thereof.
