Why would smoking blacken your lungs

because you don't swallow the smoke or do you? oh ya i don't smoke I was just wondering

Think of your lungs like a sponge. If you look closely, you see countless holes is the sponge that are able to absorb water. The same stands true for the lungs. When a person smokes, these holes fill up with disgusting nicotine turning them black and unable to function properly. I'm sure we'd see black too if we were able to see a smoker's breath. Yuk.

Why, do you? You're basically inhaling/intaking in smoke, and it can do it. Tar.

Not saying I would ever do it but would weed do that? I'm just curious

No, dan, it wouldn't. Weed has no long-term, detrimental, physical effects.

I think smoke is smoke. Cigarettes have chemicals in them but who knows what else is mixed up in that pot.
I'm watching children of my friends (who also believe it has no harmful effects), smoke on a daily basis, drag themselves to work, then they're too lazy to maintain their cars, work around the house, never mind make improvments and upgrades. They justify buying pot rather than saving for a rainy day. It's turning the working middle class into an apathetic, lethargic and unproductive generation.

I'm not sure whether you're asking how the blackening occurs (which seems to have been well answered above) or if you're doubting that it happens. See for yourself: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_EvZPNndO0AU/S8gu2t3FH5I/AAAAAAAAAOk/5zGZqimmp8Q/s1600/11257767.JPG
