Are the holes on your tonsils caused from smoking marijuana?

No, your tonsils job is to release white blood cells into your mouth to fight off infections. (Thus needing holes.) Over time when you age, your tonsils may grow in to irregular shapes, grow crevices, or event appear to have bigger holes. Now, that it is uncommon for people to get a tonsillectomy, more people find themselves battling the things like tonsil stones. Which are a mass that grows in the holes and crevices of your tonsils. This mass is primarily made up of pus, food, and bacterias. Many people think that it might just be left over food stuck under the back of their tongue, but in all actuality its a bit more than food. Smoking marijuana isn't the culprit for these stones as it can happen to anyone. However, many types of bacteria grow better on a warm dry canvas. (Think cotton mouth.) -- RMZMD
