Never knew Bob marley died of cancer at 36 y.o.(found this while Google searching famous people that died of lung cancer); "His addiction to smoking was also a major cause of his condition.":

Bob Marley
Bob Marley was a well-known singer, musician, and songwriter from Jamaica. The reason behind his death all started with a toe injury at a soccer game in France in 1977. He thought that the injury was not so severe and ignored taking treatment. As time passed by, the injury worsened. The entire nail came off and doctors recommended an amputation. Even then Marley still refused and continued with his limp. Later, Marley underwent a skin graft on the affected toe, which was considered to be a success. In 1980, he fainted while performing on stage in New York; and the very next day, he collapsed while jogging in Central Park. It was a shock when the doctors diagnosed melanoma (cancer of the skin) on his toe and was given only a month's time to live. The cancer had spread to his lungs and brain. His addiction to smoking was also a major cause of his condition. Eight months later, Bob Marley passed away at the age of 36 in May 1981.

I was never much a fan of his, so just read a bit of his Wiki page. It seems to refute some of the above post. But very unfortunate either way--he was only 36 y.o.

That's interesting. I don't always agree with Bill O'Reilly, but he's on the right track in speaking out here.

"Is dat ryt?"

And you are expecting us for you to be serious with that spelling?

Even the guys that were with me when I started up knew it was harmful. As we sat listening to Led Zep's first album, they were taken aback when I said I didn't know how to work the bong (smoke the weed from it). Had to be shown. Explained to them that it was my first time, that so and so (who was sitting beside me) convinced me to do it after nagging me many times before. If looks could kill....the look they immediately laid on that dude spoke volumes. Here was a (seemingly) innocent person being started up on a drug that would enslave for the next five years. Tremendously fun at first...later came the mental illness/isolation/paranoia/ext reme self-consciousness/neurotic--h ad to touch door handles a ceratin way when exiting the house or would have to go back and do it right--what nowadays they call obsessive compulsive disorder but do not connect the dots back marijuana. Once off the marijuana that crap subsided almost entirely. Etc. Btw,$340/month was being spent on marijuana at the end.

Whoever posted under my name (post #17--Monday June 3rd) did so illegally. It is criminal to post using another persons name, particularly in the manner they have done. This forum is being copied and reported to law enforcement.

It also explains the manner in which trouble has been incited against me for over the past 10 years in places of employment, etc., resulting in homelessness. Anonymous slanderers; it's called "bad jacketing"--people's lives are ruined in this manner. Note the forum title here is about Bob Marley (marijuana). I'd spoken out once again about the harm of marijuana at City Council meetings and this is the most recent form of harassment in retaliation.

For the record, I was in American Fork, Utah on June 3rd, and for weeks preceding that date. I left Tucson (where I'd spoke at City and County Council meetings) and did not stop in Phoenix. Besides, that was during the first week of May--well before this post appears on June 3 showing me as posting in Phoenix.

One other point...the posts of mine (on other threads) showing "Campbell, CA" are actually in American Fork, Utah public library. For some reason their computers were showing posting from Campbell, CA. And the thread about Kasilof bear attack also contains a slanderous post falsely appearing to be from myself.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
