Voice change

I'ma 21 year old female and My voice changed about a year ago, my voice got really raspy and people think that I'm sick and I'm not! Now I don't smoke cigarettes but I do smoke weed here and there but it's not an everyday thing but I do notice when I smoke my voice gets a little more horse and raspy but my throat is not sore at ALL. I started to get a really worried because it's like everyone I talk to thinks I'm sick because of the way I sound, so I want to know if this is something I should really go see a doctor about or is it just a change in my voice?

Since you smoke weed from time to time, and it makes your voice sound a little raspy as you do it, you could stop smoking altogether for a few days and see if your everyday voice clears up.

Hoarseness can be caused by many things.

As a general rule it is recommended that, when hoarseness lasts for more than two weeks, you go see a doctor for a look at your vocal cords.
