    Study Shows Cannabis DOES NOT Cause Lung Cancer

    The largest study ever conducted on marijuana’s relevance to lung cancer has come up with some somewhat surprising results. The National Institutes of Health’s National Institute on Drug Abuse funded the University of California at Los Angeles study, which found that smoking marijuana does not cause lung cancer, and it doesn’t seem to matter how much or how often it is smoked.

If you keep it straight from the earth, I really believe you will be fine.

    That's what I always say: If God made it, it's good. If man made it, it's bad. In moderation of course.

    Butter - good
    Margarine - bad

    Sugar - good
    Artificial sweeteners - bad

    Marijuana/Whole tobacco - good
    Cigarettes - bad

    Natural spring water - good
    City water - bad

    Coca leaf - good
    Cocaine - bad

    By the way, my first post was tongue in cheek.

    This kind of news about marijuana almost never gets promoted heavily. The propaganda of marijuana use continues to be demonized in favor of prescription medication. It's a basic thought process. Why would something man made in a lab be better for you than something that grows naturally? Not everything growing naturally is good for consumption of course (poisonous plants, etc.), but it's been proven so many ways how useful the marijuana herb is.

    Of course it doesn't.

    Although..they say if you smoke cigs and cannabis it increases your chances of COPD immensely. I was always hoping the cannabis would combat the cigs , I need to stop anyway. Other studies show marijuana being less addictive (although it CAN, very, very rarely) than even caffeine, but we all knew this. I think you can be addicted to cannabis, but it's not physical, more of a mental/habitual forming thing. Just like how people enjoy their coffee every morning ;p.

    I've been smoking some oil/waxes lately and I find it to be better on my lungs than just smoking flowers. Not inhaling any of that plant material...it just kills my tolerance.
