I know this ingest or breathing in any burned material contain carcinogens which are cancer causing even prolonged ingestion of burnt toast could in theory give you cancer,It just so happens that I was seriously thinking of buying a vaporizer of some sort but a Volcano would be too pricey i wouldn't spend that money on a smoking implement.I was looking at the Buddah would you recommend it.As it is i smoke tobacco/weed joints and I'm only on my first grow and sick of paying top dollar for second rate weed.So with my own better quality weed i smoke less stoned longer and more money in the pockets for the other finer things in life
Theres a helluva lot more tar in MJ...like over 3 times as much, and people don't use filters on joints/spliffs so you figure it out!
Ok, cigarettes DO have loads of other stuff in which MJ doesn't BUT...

Based on observations alone, inhaling any kind of smoke over and over isn't good for you. People who smoke cigarettes smoke 1/2 - 2 packs per day. Pot smokers don't consume as many inhalations over the course of the same day as cigarette smokers. Those of you who are heavy smokers on either side, I'd suggest you add some lung expanding cardio to your weekly routine.
emmmm flavour country!!!
Or just smoke with a vaporizer.

But cannabis has more beneficial effects compared to tobacco, according to science.
So I guess my answer to your question would be that cannabis is not as harmfull as the ciggs BUT if you want to smoke because of( physical ) habbit AND you got to drive you would do better to avoid the mj. . . . . many factors come into play with safety of substances in mind, I mean some life saving pharmaceauticals are highly toxic but the benefits outweigh the risks in certain situations.

There are a few things to consider about cigarettes that a lot of people don't seem to realize. Firstly, 95+% of cigarette brands and other so-called 'tobacco' products just aren't really tobacco. A good percentage of what is in a cigarette is homogenized or "reconstituted tobacco"; they take the sweepings from the floor and other left overs: dust, stems and low grade leaf parts that could be a decade old, blend it to a pulp, press it into a sheet and shred it.
Then there is the "expanded tobacco", made with leaf that is doused in ammonia and freon, then freeze-dried. This increases the finished volume of tobacco they can get out of the same amount of material.
Then there are the 599 additives that the FDA has actually approved for these bastards to adulterate the recon with. Despite all of this, everybody turns around and says tobacco causes cancer, so smoking causes cancer and thus cannabis must have the potential cause it, too.
But, wait a minute...there is also smokeless tobacco: snuff, dip, chewing tobacco products. These products are also very likely to cause oral, esophageal and other kinds of cancer with prolonged use. There is absolutely no smoke involved here...and yet, cancer! I know of no other herbal materials that could cause a cancerous lesion to develop if you constantly put a wad of it between your lip and gum line.
And I am surprised more people don't catch on to this, and the fact that tobacco grown in the United States (and likely many other places) is grown with cheap phosphate fertilizers that are derived from mined apatite and contaminated with radium, lead 210 and polonium 210 (these are radioactive).
If you do a little research and come up with lists of the components that are found in mainstream tobacco smoke (not just the list of the additives) you will see polonium 210 and various other horrible substances listed there.
I used to try to explain this to people all the time, so many of them refused to consider it and many more just seemed to pretend to agree...while they took another drag. Smoke your cigarettes and die like the government wants you too, kids!
