Addiction and Substance Abuse
Does smoking pot give you cancer, and also does it stunt height growth?
Marijuana smoke is definitely a carcinogen.....just one of many good reasons not to smoke this very addictive, dangerous drug. As far as I know, smoking marijuana does not stunt growth. However, if you smoke a lot of marijuana, you probably won't care how tall or short you are. There is no good reason to smoke marijuana.
