Nearly Half of People With Uncontrolled Asthma Smoke Marijuana

A new survey published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, the scientific journal of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), reveals that most people with asthma who use marijuana inhale the drug by smoking, while one third vaped it. In addition, a significant number of individuals with uncontrolled asthma said they smoke pot. The Adult Allergy & Asthma network conducted an anonymous online survey to assess cannabis use and attitudes in people with asthma and allergies. Additionally, about 60% of marijuana users currently suffered from asthma, with uncontrolled asthma seen in 40% of pot smokers. (Signs of uncontrolled asthma include daily shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing and coughing.)
