I'm sure that regular pot smoking can cause serious health problems. That's why I'm against legalization of marijuana for recreational use. But I'm glad that it is legal for medicinal purposes as canabis is very helpful for people who suffer from pain, stress, anxiety, fatigue, depression, insomnia and differest disorders. It can increase productivity, improve sleep, reduce mood swings and increase appetite (it is possible to read more here). But still there are people who smoke pot every day, and later most of them have to receive treatment at rehab centers.
