Every time one of these alarmist articles pops up about the dangers of pot smoking I 'm eager to hear what they have to say. After all, marijuana really does seem to good to be true given its huge number of applications, and every single time, upon close inspection, its found that the "studies" are conducted in such away that they are totally meaningless and fail to even provide circumstantial evidence that weed causes any harm at all. Yes, and if eating carrots caused the same number of deaths as tobacco I'm sure the numbers would be even more frightening. Unless he has evidence that marijuana causes deaths in the way smoking does(which he does not) then his statement is no more meaningful then my carrot one. Ah yes, I remember that study( I posted on it here when it came out). It did show an association....people who were schizophrenic or depressed were found to be more likely to use cannabis. Hardly surprising as the main reason people smoke cannabis is to make themselves feel better. I'm sure a strong association could be found between prozac and depression or thorazine and schizophrenia as well. This does not mean that it causes it. This article goes on to advocate further research into the harmful effects of marijuana. The funny thing is, research has been done, and none of it has found any evidence that marijuana hurts people, much of it has found that it is beneficial...One study actually showed that people who smoke marijuana and tobbacco live on average seven years longer then those who smoke tobacco alone..another study, funded by anti-drug zealots for the purpose of proving that weed causes cancer actually showed that THC caused tumors to shrink and even go away. Naturally this study was quickly terminated.
