Former smokers of cannabis may be highly vulnerable to lung cancer.

​This study evaluated the correlation between previous use of cannabis and the onset of lung cancer. A team of scientists from the International Agency for Research on Cancer compared the use of cannabis with lung cancer occurrence among 337 Tunisian men.
