The Mayo clinic documents that Thirdhand smoke (THC) is residual nicotine and other chemicals left on indoor surfaces by tobacco smoke. People are exposed to these chemicals by touching contaminated surfaces or breathing in the off gassing from these surfaces. Third-hand smoke, whether from tobacco or marijuana, has a significant health impact on inhabitants of houses and apartments. First, there is a considerable level of sorption of a tacky residue that clings to wall surfaces which off-gas into the air. Cigarettes reportedly contain over 4,000 chemicals! People with asthma and allergies are most affected by poor air quality, though those who did not have asthma before smoke exposure are more likely to develop bronchial issues; this is even more critical to consider in children.
