    no they dont filter out the thc, thats the chemical that gets u stoned. they filter out the smoke, and leave the thc in it, it makes it alot smoother.

    where did you read that bongs filter anything?
    they simply cool the smoke.
    ive never heard of any filtering going on,that would defeat the purpose of smoking any.

    Bongs will filter out water-soluble gases or components of the marijuana smoke, the water will also filter out a negligable amount of THC from the smoke. The study you reference was performed by MAPS but used NIDA supplied marijuana, grown by the govnerment and about as potent as brick weed (if not weaker).
    If you enjoy smoking out of a bong don't stop due to the results of one study.

    does drinking the bong water get u high? because if it did then some of the highness-potential would be lost in the bong water?

    who cares about what it filters, it feels better on my lungs than joints or pipes, and gets me high as a motherfucker.

    bongs just filter out carcinogens, THC, bein non-water-soluble like you said, will pass right through it, some people who like to add alcohol or sumthin will lose THC because it is alchol-soluble, but if you just keep straight up water, youll do fine
