Quote :
10) MARIJUANA USE HAS NO EFFECT ON MORTALITY: A massive study of California HMO members funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) found marijuana use caused no significant increase in mortality. Tobacco use was associated with increased risk of death. Sidney, S et al. Marijuana Use and Mortality. American Journal of Public Health. Vol. 87 No. 4, April 1997. p. 585-590. Sept. 2002.

9) HEAVY MARIJUANA USE AS A YOUNG ADULT WON’T RUIN YOUR LIFE: Veterans Affairs scientists looked at whether heavy marijuana use as a young adult caused long-term problems later, studying identical twins in which one twin had been a heavy marijuana user for a year or longer but had stopped at least one month before the study, while the second twin had used marijuana no more than five times ever. Marijuana use had no significant impact on physical or mental health care utilization, health-related quality of life, or current socio-demographic characteristics. Eisen SE et al. Does Marijuana Use Have Residual Adverse Effects on Self-Reported Health Measures, Socio-Demographics or Quality of Life? A Monozygotic Co-Twin Control Study in Men. Addiction. Vol. 97 No. 9. p.1083-1086. Sept. 1997

Cool THE “GATEWAY EFFECT” MAY BE A MIRAGE: Marijuana is often called a “gateway drug” by supporters of prohibition, who point to statistical “associations” indicating that persons who use marijuana are more likely to eventually try hard drugs than those who never use marijuana – implying that marijuana use somehow causes hard drug use. But a model developed by RAND Corp. researcher Andrew Morral demonstrates that these associations can be explained “without requiring a gateway effect.” More likely, this federally funded study suggests, some people simply have an underlying propensity to try drugs, and start with what’s most readily available. Morral AR, McCaffrey D and Paddock S. Reassessing the Marijuana Gateway Effect. Addiction. December 2002. p. 1493-1504.

Very interesting article, imo. and it may even PREVENT cancer it says.

Curious as to the reason WHY we have cannabinoid receptors? God made us with those, right? I need to look into this but I wonder if they only work with cannabis? or do our cannabinoid receptors have other uses / working with other chemicals as well?
I believe God gives us natural healing "things" for reasons.

All the propaganda is just that! I crack up at those old shows where they are smoking and then running around like crazy! Folks, THAT is a LIE! Back in the day, I've been around a lot of ''smoke". Folks are more laid back and relaxed if anything....are NOT driving like a raving lunatic as that show suggested, etc. .... what was that show called again?
Anyway, you get the gist! ALL of that was propaganda/LIES to sway you against! Of course ''they'' always have their reasons...agendas for such.

To mention: Had a friend with stomach cancer approx 30 years ago , when we were teenagers (in middle school). She was prescribed MJ and it was the ONLY thing that helped her to be able to eat and take away pain...
Just telling it like it is... IT HELPED!

Seems these days the bad is the GOOD anymore...and the Good is the bad...
talk about a world gone dyslexic!!

What do you guys think? We need further study on cancer cures and cannabis! Maybe now that it is legal in some other places , hopefully we will be able to further examine to find out all of its BENEFITS. More folk do seem to be waking up and getting on their feet!
