Wow bbkf, you're quite the expert, eh?

Mmmk. Yeah, inhaling smoke in general is probably not "healthy." But people already do it legally with another plant that is at the least far more addictive. Not to mention that there are several other ways to consume marijuana.
bbkf wrote:so if it has never been studied, then why did you make the claim that it has anti-cancer qualities?
there is no health benefit to marijuana, stop kidding yourself.
BS, and also BS. Marijuana/THC has been studied in universities and by the government. At the very least, it has been shown to promote appetite and reduce nausea. Can you think of anyone that might be medically beneficial to?

Wat? Because bringing in revenue from taxing a legal product would be worse for the economy than spending on police to combat it? Thanks for your opinions. Maybe you should smoke less.
