The federal government, in its attempt to keep marijuana illegal and misunderstood, recently sponsored a study which was conducted by the University of California Center for Medical Cannabis. The goal of the study was to disprove the many other studies that show cannabis to be safe and effective in treating symptoms, side-effects and diseases. Guess what? The CMCR came to the same conclusion as those other studies: marijuana is medically useful and effective. Oops. That’s rather inconvenient, isn’t it?
As published in the Open Neurology Journal, this new study showed that cannabis treats many conditions including chronic pain, peripheral neuropathy and the side-effects of chemo therapy, among other things. The study also showed that other delivery systems besides smoking – vaporizing, tincture, ingestion – work almost as well as lighting up. But smoking is the best way to take cannabis. Good thing another recent study showed that marijuana does not cause lung cancer.

Well, I’ll tell you what, I smoked cigarettes for 41 years, and have been free for fourteen years, but whenever I smoke a joint, my longs ache for at least a day afterward, so I don’t believe for a minute that cannabis cannot cause lung cancer. As for pot brownies, they are great, as long as you get the right type of pot because the cooking process can kill off the THC effect, in my experience.
Just because smoking marijuana doesn’t cause cancer doesn’t mean that you aren’t clogging your lungs with tar or other residue in the process.
Well I can tell you one thing marijuana causes for bloody well certain: incarceration!
