ATS: Marijuana Smoking Found Non-Carcinogenic


Quote:SAN DIEGO, May 24 — Smoking marijuana does not appear to increase the risk of lung cancer or head-and-neck malignancies, even among heavy users, researchers reported here.

Quote:They found that the heaviest users in the study had smoked more than 60 joint years worth of marijuana (One joint-year equivalent to 365 marijuana cigarettes or one per day.), or more than 22,000 joints in their lifetime. Moderately heavy users smoked between 11,000 and 22,000 joints.

"That's an enormous amount of marijuana," Dr. Tashkin said.

Despite the heavy use, "in no category was there any increased risk, nor was there any suggestion that smoking more led to a higher odds ratio," he continued. "There was no dose-response—not even a suggestion of a dose response—and in all types of cancer except one, oral cancer, the odds ratios were less than one."

One more excuse for not legalizing shot down! cheers.gif

Smoke 'em if you got 'em!

Didn't need research to tell me that, I'd have already died years ago if that were the case. shït they've never gave a damn about pot so much as hemp, it scares the ƒück out of industry and is renewable.
Can't have the plebs being self reliant now can we. 15.gif
Additionally pot is now scaring big pharma now that research proves it's a cure for cancer, pain treatment and a host of other ailments.
Good thread. puffpuffpass.gif

That's true about hemp but when you consider the money cannabis brings in through sales, fines, lawyer fees, court costs, helicopter fuel, prison costs,etc, there are billions of reasons to keep pot illegal. I'm still amazed Washington and Colorado legalized.

Ergo: Legalization needs to contain free homegrowing.
Otherwise: Monsanto, Syngenta, Frankensmoke...

That will all change. Just as soon as the Fed steps in and makes everyone spray the weed just like they do with tobacco.

It's also natural and doesn't pollute the water system with chemicals, the way prescription drugs do and are allowed to! Oh, and Marijuana comes no where near killing as many as alcohol or tobacco. But we will continue to be lied to by the higher ups like usual and babies will be born with 200 cheicals in their body and dependent on prescription pills! Thank you Govt. and Pharmaceutical companies for ruining the human genome! Kudos for that!/sarcasm
