With marijuana now legal in Canada, health officials have been trying to warn the public about the adverse effects of cannabis.
One issue often left at the wayside is those who don’t smoke it but are near it
We spoke with Linda Stobo, who is a Program Manager for Chronic Disease Prevention and Tobacco Control.
We asked her if second-hand smoke from marijuana is as dangerous as tobacco
Stobo adds that weed is psycho-active substance and people should be cautious of who they are smoking it around.
Children, the elderly, and those with chronic diseases are advised to stay away from all second-hand smoke.
