Cannabis WORSE than Tobacco

From BBC Health News:

Cannabis harm worse than tobacco

The impact of cannabis is worsened by how joints are smoked.

The research, published in the journal Thorax, found cannabis damaged the large airways in the lungs causing symptoms such as coughing and wheezing.

And don’t let anyone tell you it isn’t addictive as well as damaging to your health.

  6. First we celebrate my Mom’s BD and I take care of business here – don’t I make it sound all business-y? Actually, it is Seafair Week, the weather is gorgeous, I get to see lots of old friends and . . . the weather is gorgeous, or did I say that already? Hmmmm. . . . gorgeous vs steamy? gorgeous vs steamy . . . .

  8. Seems to me the UK had some very strange and severe flooding this summer. . . do you think that is more global warming?

  9. Yeah definitely. It could also be karma if you want to look at it more metaphorically on a global scale. Global warming seems more likely to me though…

  10. I think almost any substance can be abused and that it’s ridiculous that marijuana is illegal when it is much less dangerous when it is abused than when alcohol is.
