Does smoking marijuana rolled in tobacco paper cause cancer

Patient: Does smoking marijuana rolled in tobacco paper cause cancer or long-term side effects?

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.Cigarette paper having some residue chemicals can contain carcinogens when it is burnt. Also, having marijuana may have a link to cancer in the long term. A long enough study to test this has not been performed. I recommend that you stop taking all marijuana to help you in your health and avoid all side effects.Wishing you the best.
