2nd hand smoke affects everyone. According to a panel of leading medical researchers reporting to the surgeon general of the US, 2nd hand smoke is as lethal as 1st hand smoke.

Kudos to president Bill Clinton for initiating the attack on the tobacco industry, which has caused untold medical costs in this country, as well as taking the lives of many of our parents

a decade and a half too soon.

On the other hand, Rush Limbaugh says that 2nd hand smoke is harmless, and common sense will tell you that. Of course, LImbaugh is a paid shill for the tobacco industry (political industry et al.,)

But, you're asking specifically if 2nd hand smoke aggravates dp. I quit smoking 38 years ago. I don't remember it having any impact on my dp. But, if smoking doesn't affect your dp, why would

2nd hand smoke bother you? If you don't smoke, and 2nd hand smoke bothers you, then bothered is bothered.

Talking about being high, or simply talking with people who are high, can affect you. We can mirror the people around us in surprising ways, and we can "psych ourselves out," so to speak.

As for absorbing the marijuana through second-hand smoke, being around high potency marijuana smoke in an area without ventilation can cause you to absorb some. If you don't want to absorb any, ventilate the room or have your friends blow smoke outside.

If you live in an area where marijuana is illegal, or if you just don't like the smell lingering in your house or traveling towards your neighbors, find something to blow the smoke into.

Whether or not you get detached is somewhat in your control, and there's no reason to fear losing just a little bit of control. That being said, it's totally reasonable to ask your friends to blow outside or into something to catch the smoke.
to fear losing just a little bit of control.

when you say that do you mean theres no reason to fear if i get the second hand smoke? because its not in my control? like no reason to fear getting a little detached?

I wouldn't flip out if you happen to smell it walking down the road. Just don't hang out with your friends in a hotboxed room
