Smoking anything is going to have an adverse effect on your upper respiratory tissues. If you don't believe me stop smoking for a month and you will notice that you are coughing up less phlegm. If the effect is so gradual you don't notice it, then when you do start smoking it again you'll notice more coughing and more phlegm.
There are other ways to consume it without smoking it, and of course the higher the grade the less you have to consume.
I'm no goodie-two-shoes, and I'm not opposed to the legalization of marijuana. Like all things, it has its pros and cons. One of the cons of smoking anything is that it will have an adverse effect on certain aspects of your health, as will the intake of any drug or substance, especially when done in excess. The issue is, do the benefits outweigh the costs? We are each the only ones who can answer that for ourselves.
