Better than cigarettes? Comparing Tobacco, Marijuana, and Shisha.Quick Fact: Hookahs are used to smoke shisha and shisha = tobacco. Using a hookah to smoke shisha can be addictive!
Truth: Just like regular tobacco, shisha contains nicotine, making it addictive. In fact, in a 60 minute session, shisha-smokers are exposed to 100-200x the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette and 3x the amount of nicotine!Quick Fact: College students who use marijuana regularly often have impaired skills related to attention, memory and learning.
Truth: People can become dependent on marijuana. Becoming dependent on marijuana is more likely to occur for people who used marijuana weekly as teens, men (vs. women), and smokers (vs. non-smokers).
