sounds like your getting a cramp of some sort..... or using muscle that you dont normal use.... when you smoking are you coughing alot?......do you normally work out....

im a daily pot smoker myself...everyday..every night.....sometimes when i wake up in the morning i feel short of breathe for the first few mins that i wake up.... i will breathe in a it will feel like my lungs hurt... but eventually it feels like my lungs open up and im ok.....

pot doesnt always lead to other drugs....some people are just happy smoking pot, and nothing else, some other use as a gateway...it depends on the person

From your name I take it you like smoking marijuana. Well I just thought id let you know my experience. I started smoking pot at young age around 16. And turned into a drug addict after that. using pot, coke, lsd, cigarettes, crack, even huffing ggasoline to get high. I can tell you all of those drugs are worthless to your body. At age 29 now I look back at how much I screwed up at my younger age. I guess it taught me lessons. But all those years of abusing my body couldnt have done me good. I too have been chest pained from smoking weed and cigarettes even crack cocaine. This is a warning sign that your body doesnt like it. It my give you a breif ueforia, but if u are getting chest pains after u smoke. U could be having anxiety attacks pain. My only advice to you is that drugs will eventually ruin your brain and cause you anxiety - panic attacks, Quit while your still young, eat good foods that are natural, and exercise. drugs arent natural
