it's possible, occasionally weed is contaminated with various crap like that.

I don't know if they do this where you live but here they spray it with silicone, grit and all types of stuff to make it weigh more.

some can, especially if they aren't immediately exposed to an open flame (i.e. if you where smoking a joint)

noone here (except maybe some very stupid or desperate people) would even consider buying weed that appeared to be sprayed with chemicals or mixed with various crap.

Rarely done here, only heard about it happen once, most of the stuff you mentioned is really bad for you but probably won't give you tonsillitis.

on second thought, maybe cig packs aren't the best choice of material for filters...

wait maybe i shoulda explained the circumstances

the first time this happened was about a year ago and i smoked weed on school camp.....it was a ****ing three day trip into hell, we went canoeing on the open ocean......

and the second time was a few weeks ago and i smoked and then had a saw throat alllllll week
then i got ****ing off my head that weekend and whilst i was dealing with my hangover my throat started to hurt.....and then all of a sudden i got ****ing tonsilitis and then glandular fever.......

but can the weed contibute to the sore throats all week leading to getting tonsilitis?
oh and btw i smoke often

No, tonsilitis is caused by either a bacterial or a viral infection, smoking (anything, not just dope) could irritate it but it would not be the actual cause of the infection.

had blood tests and i had tonilitis AND glandular fever at the same time

Sorry to dissillusion you, but unless you have a mate that grows it you can almost guarantee that whatever you are buying has had some crap added to it to bulk it out - you'll probably never know unless you test it in a lab, or get ill from it.

And TS, if you aren't used to smoking you might have just hurt your throat form the smoke, and weakened it so you caught tonsillitis. Or someone you were sharing a spliff with might have had tonsillitis and given it to you.

You say that but here sometimes that's all you can get and so people will buy it. I'm not gonna lie, I still buy it if there is no alternative. It's quite annoying to find out that it seems to be a British problem rather than worldwide.

Sorry, but I don't live in England, and I'll tell you this doesn't happen here very often.

Weed can't cause tonsillitis by itself, but the smoke can be pretty harsh (Especially if you're not used to smoking), and could surely exacerbate conditions like a sore throat.

That being said, it's more than likely a coincidence. It definitely won't cause any of it on it's own, but it's still inhaling smoke.

Well, smoke weed.

If symptoms immediately follow blazing, say no to weed.

Then it's highly unlikely to be the cause because if it was, you'd have tonsilitis often too.

Yeah, that's generally done by the most shady dealers though.
Luckily, here in Ye Aulde Netherlands you don't have that problem once you're 18 and can buy it legally.

But I think the OP's problem is a very VERY disturbing coincidence.

Don't feel too bad, it probably happens in other areas where you can't get away with growing weed on highway medians too.
