    This has been going on for a few weeks now, and at first I thought it was from my allergies (I take Flonase and Allegra for these). Now I am beginning to think it's the smoking. I just wanted to see what yalls opinions were before I spent the money and the day off of work for the doctor. I'm almost sure it's just from smoking.

    Anyways. Here's two pictures of the said mucus. **Again, these are of my "Loogies" that are off colored, could be gross to some people.**

    There was a fellow i knew several years ago that had a bad PM problem and never got it taken care of. He had respiratory infections from smoking those buds. His loogies looked like that.

    I hope this isnt your problem.. it just reminded me of that.

    Get well soon.

    Yeah, man, definitely see a doctor and look into vaporizing. Smoke isn't good for your lungs or throat lining. While there is evidence of THC preventing tumor growth in lab mice, smoke is still bad for your alveoli and lining of your throat. Plus, there's alot of resin and tar from burning cannabis. Switch to vaporizing, dude.

    That's not good...do you smoke anything else besides grass? My mom's a nurse and the severity scale of mucus color she taught me goes Clear = Ok, Yellow = Possible Slight Infection, Green = Big Infection, Red = Blood present see a doctor, Black/Grey/Brown = Tobacco use and/or possible lung damage. I'd get it checked out.

    Yeah Red would be the worst, he's sitting at the second worst. It looks typical of a tobacco smoker which might be less alarming, if he doesn't smoke tobacco then I'd be much more concerned and wondering what's going on in those lungs. I've coughed up clear stuff if I smoke something really harsh but nothing that looks like that.

    All you are doing is coughing up the tar that is sitting in your lungs, the only negative effect there is from smoking weed, I would suggest looking into vaporizers or as the other guest suggested if you just want the high, putting the THC in an edible or drinkable form. i.e. Cookies, brownies, and tincture ..............................:)

    I gotta say I've smoked a lot of sticky shit, no filtration, before I got my vape. I've never coughed up tar or anything like that and same goes for my friend that smokes 3 times a day still for the last 4 years. Both our respiratory systems are in perfect shape according to our docs. But hey you never know.

    And a whole 3 times a day... *smirk* sorry, but that is relatively light use for many.

    I can't imagine smoking more than that, actually me personally can't imagine smoking more than twice a day generally. Unless it's lower quality or something, but then it's very different for me personally too. I weigh like 117 soaking wet and have an insanely fast metabolism (consumes 12 tacos in one night, gains no weight, friends glare at me), so I'm a cheap drunk and a cheap toker too.

    Damn thanks for the quick replies and advice.

    I was in a rush and couldnt type up all my background history. I never smoked ciggs, smoke probably a gram a day and do moderate-minor excercise. I just got back from my diabetes doc and she says im healthy as a horse.

    What's this PM disease or whatever your buddy had? Pneumonia?

    He's talking about powdery mildew, on the plants.

    I doubt that's your issue though. A gram a day will do it, honestly. That's a quarter a week, that's enough to build up. Do more exercise and keep hacking that crap out... and either smoke less often or get a vape... smoking definitely does this to ya. Those who say it doesn't are either not smoking as much, in denial, or aren't doing enough to expectorate it out. It's better out than in though, even though it might gross you out or freak ya out...

    hey! I've been smoking for about 8 years and I'm coughing up black stuff...
    The way I think about it is that it's better if I cough it out than if I leave it be...
    For me that's the big difference between cigs and weed. Cigs, you keep it inside and weed you cough it up...
