Smoking is smoking, no matter what brand you smoke. You can request a chest x-ray when you see your doctor. With all of the symptoms you have described, I am sure a doc would agree to it. It would put your mind at ease. Good Luck and God Bless.
You could call your local hospital and find out the cost. If you have a Not for Profit hospital in your area they might do an x-ray. You will just have to do some research to find one that gives discounts for people without insurance. I don't think smoking marijuana is healthier than cigarettes. They are both unhealthy.
