Here's another study that will certainly add fuel the ferocious marijuana debate: health researchers found that smoking pot could more than double the risk of stroke in young adults.

It is a common practice among cannabis smokers to smoke it with tobacco. However, that practice can make them more nicotine-dependent, the study from the Northern NSW Health District suggests. A study by the health promotion research and evaluation team of the Northern NSW Health District has shown that high number of tobacco smokers in the North Coast may be related to use of cannabis.
