Middle-age people who have smoked marijuana for many years may have a higher risk of developing gum disease, according to a new New Zealand study. The study found that amoung 38 year olds who had regularly smoked pot for 15 to 20 years, 56% had gum disease, also called periodontal disease. In comparison, only 13.5% of the 38 year olds who had never smoked marijuana had gum disease. In some cases, this disease may lead to tooth loss.
