Good News

Well, this is good news if you're a pot smoker, which, of course, I'm not because that would be illegal. Nooooo, siree. I don't break the law. Never. And I assume, dear reader, that you don't smoke pot, either. Do you? Of course not. Fine, upstanding citizen that you are and all. You'd never be caught with pot on you, oh, let's just say, right now. Correct?

No, seriously, you got any?

Pot smoking does not cause lung cancer.

While a clear increase in cancer risk was seen among cigarette smokers in the study, no such association was seen for regular cannabis users.

Even very heavy, long-term marijuana users who had smoked more than 22,000 joints over a lifetime seemed to have no greater risk than infrequent marijuana users or nonusers.

22,000 joints? Wow. That's like two joints a day for about 30 years and it's still safe. I'm going to have to pick up the pace.

The moral of the story: White Sox fans need not fret about Freddy Garcia. He's the picture of perfect health.

The result of a scientific study here in France were unleashed 6 months ago or so. It was saying that 3 joints a day = 20 cigarettes, because pot is increasing the absorption of cancerous substances of the cigarettes. Consider that you put tobacco in your weed - if your are not that rich and even if you wish you don't - and you feel like the result of "your" study does not seem to be very serious.
