    My friend said that smoking out of alluminum makes you get alzheimers (sp..) sooner. Has anyone else heard this?

    There are many tales of what smoking on Aluminium does to you. They generally untrue.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's one of those famous stoner myths.
     
  4. when the flame hits the aluminum, it releases oxides, as well as a few other nasty chemicals, into your smoke. why else does the aluminum turn brittle and nearly unusable after only a few bowls? however, even though it is unhealthy to smoke out of aluminum, you'd have to be smoking a boatload of it before you realized you're being poisoned....

    Yeah ... your not gonna get alzheimers from smoking a tinny here and there. I wouldn't smoke out of them all the time though, just buy yourself a cheap glass piece. But like happyonehit said ... the aluminum does give off some nasty chems when it's heated.

    Aluminum foil releases toxic chemicals while heated, and its use should be avoided as high aluminum levels have been found in the brains of some patients with neurological diseases.

  8. yea really you should only use a tinny in a serious pinch....like im talking about when you have NO other option....one night a few weeks ago my friend and i had bud but not a damn thing to smoke with....no blunts, no papers, no cigarettes to empty out and repack, no bowl...and it was 2 in the morning and theres not much in the way of 24 hour stores in my town....

    so that night we used a tinny....it is bad for you, that i am pretty certain off, but i figure once in a while it's not the end of the world. but i usually just keep a book of papers in my wallet, so i don't get caught in that situation.
