Is smoking Cannabis near birds safe?

No need for the personal attacks; I found the act of me asking about the safety of marajuana usage on a bird fourm humorous haha. Personally I've made sure to steer clear of any smoke/fume/strong scent producing stuff but I've heard here and there that certain scents like vinegar, normal wax candles & lavender are ok if they're in another room away from the bird and I wanted to make sure that that extended to birds

It's more of a once every few weeks to once a month thing; I keep an air purifier in there anyway & I take a shower after I get home so I'll probably just end up doing the same thing I do & make sure she avoids smoke/fume producing things as usual

Candles (of any kind) shouldn’t be used inside a house with birds, even if in other rooms/behind closed doors/etc. One of my avian vets hard and fast rules is that there is no candle safe to use in a home with birds. I think unfortunately a lot of incorrect information is often spread about and eventually enough people believe it to make it seem credible. But medically, it is still harmful. Not just the wax that is burning, or the particles released into the air, but the wick (they’re not all made the same) can also be harmful itself when lit.

Yeah sounds about right; I think I'm learning on this thread that there's a crap ton of misinfo on bird care
