    ....Doctors found that people who smoked the most marijuana were 60% more likely to have mild signs of gum disease and 300% more likely to have signs of moderate gum disease by age 32 than those who did not smoke marijuana....

    ...Study participants who smoked the most cannabis were 1.6 times more likely to have to have at least one site with mild periodontal (gum) disease than those who had never smoked cannabis.

    Even those who smoked cannabis at a 'mild' rate (fewer than 41 times a year) were more likely to have mild and severe gum disease than people who never used the drug....

    Of course its bad for your mouth it's smoking. I'm sure cigarettes cause mouth disease too, actually i know they do because theres a picture of it on Canadian packs.

    The munchies have got to be the main contributor when tying in with marijuana.

    My friend eats a lot of junk food when silly off canabis.
