If it does not work for you don't do it.That does not mean it won't work for other people.

I recall it, but do not recall it being done at an FDA facility. Furthermore it was done before all the product safety measures were enacted. It's what started the safety measures

Are you serious?? Oh my word, LOL. Really though Old Fart, just never mind. You've been brainwashed just like the rest of the governments controlled mice in a maze.. Mj will be legalized in my lifetime. I just hope I'm able to roll the first one with what I'm sure will be my arthritic old hands by that time.
There are several varieties of cannabis. Colloquially what we call pot is only one of them. That's the one with a high enough THC content to be used as a drug. The old World varieties had so little that it was effectively chemically inert. It was good for hemp and therefore paper products and rope and even grain sacks but not as a drug. Pot is new world. Cannabis is both old and new.

Of course not. If you live out in the couty we don't have a good enough internet connection to watch video. Most of Africa has a better internet connection than the hills in the Appalachians cause we aren't a big enough market for the politicians like Rodgers or McConnell or internet comapanies to give a hoot

tbizzle, we don't use half our brain cells as it is but when the choice is a few brain cells or death its a pretty easy choice.
Anger and High blood pressure have greatly increased as we continue to dive into the fast paced/stressful lives that we do. I wish more people smoked because there is simply too much anger/violence today.
Very few universal truths....I can smoke/drink and have cancer at 35 and George Burns can do the same thing and live to be 100. Its about knowing yourself, common sense and moderation.

Old Timer, I'm not sure what you've been reading, but Cannabis definitely had drug uses in the "old world". There is plenty of evidence that people have been using Cannabis as a drug for over 4000 years. This isn't a new thing. I think you have been mislead.

Recent studies have shown that marijuana cures most cancers and many other ailments but it is still illegal. Now recent studies have shown the damage alcohol does to the body but it is most desired because it is legal.

Alcohol causes 20,000 cancer deaths in the U.S. annually

"Researchers determined that alcohol-related cancer death took away an average of 18 potential years from a person's life. Average consumption for the group was 1.5 drinks a day or less, and those drinkers made up 30 percent of the reported deaths. Larger amounts of alcohol led to higher risks of dying from cancer. Forty-eight to 60 percent of the deaths were attributed to people who drank three or more drinks a day.

"When it comes to alcohol consumption and cancers, clearly excessive drinking is the riskiest type of drinking," Naimi said to CBS station WBZ in Boston. "But when it comes to cancer, there is no safe level of alcohol consumption.""

Looks like I beat you to that one,lol. How about this one?

"Could the chemicals found in marijuana prevent and even heal several deadly cancers? Discover the truth about this ancient medicine as world-renowned scientists in the field of cannabinoid research illustrate their truly mind-blowing discoveries. "What if Cannabis Cured Cancer" explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies. When pot is consumed, the "endocannabinoids" inside us - along with any cannabinoids we ingest - fit together like a key in a lock, thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body's healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis and perhaps even the future of medicine" - Len Richmond Films

"What if Cannabis Cured Cancer summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for prevention and treatment. If we need more evidence that our current policy on cannabis is counterproductive and foolish, here it is." - Andrew Weil, M.D.

There's plenty of evidence that the Chinese have been eating tiger penis for several millennia for erectile dysfunction too. That doesn't mean that it actually does anything other than placebo effect.

Why cite something you have no medical data to back up? The medical benefits of marijuana have been proven and now backed by numerous recent studies.

The recent advancements in research has given many autistic children a new lease on life not to mention the hundreds of other ailments mj cures or helps control.
