is smoking weed bad for your kidneys

Alcohol in excess causes high blood pressure and kidney damage. You should not drink more that one beer per day in order to avoid this complication. Marijuana does not cause kidney damage as far as I am aware, but smoking it is not good for your lungs and may cause other ill effects.
