Lots of growers in the booking logs these days. I wonder how long it will take for them to realize that Mendocino County no longer has the welcome mat out for growers. If you are lucky enough to get through this year (an it ain't over yet) you better be very discreet next year or maybe move to arcata or santa cruz.

Or we could just wait till the LAW SUITS are filed and Mendocino is SO broke it cant afford to repair a pothole, because that's whats happening right now. Law suits against the county, the sheriffs office, and the DA. By april you will all see how much MONEY the county is going to have to PAY the medical growers that they STOLE medicine from.

Study Finds No Cancer-Marijuana Connection

By Marc Kaufman

Friday, May 26, 2006; A03

The largest study of its kind has unexpectedly concluded that smoking marijuana, even regularly and heavily, does not lead to lung cancer.

The new findings "were against our expectations," said Donald Tashkin of the University of California at Los Angeles, a pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years.

"We hypothesized that there would be a positive association between marijuana use and lung cancer, and that the association would be more positive with heavier use," he said. "What we found instead was no association at all, and even a suggestion of some protective effect."

Federal health and drug enforcement officials have widely used Tashkin's previous work on marijuana to make the case that the drug is dangerous. Tashkin said that while he still believes marijuana is potentially harmful, its cancer-causing effects appear to be of less concern than previously thought.

Earlier work established that marijuana does contain cancer-causing chemicals as potentially harmful as those in tobacco, he said. However, marijuana also contains the chemical THC, which he said may kill aging cells and keep them from becoming cancerous.

Tashkin's study, funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Drug Abuse, involved 1,200 people in Los Angeles who had lung, neck or head cancer and an additional 1,040 people without cancer matched by age, sex and neighborhood.

They were all asked about their lifetime use of marijuana, tobacco and alcohol. The heaviest marijuana smokers had lighted up more than 22,000 times, while moderately heavy usage was defined as smoking 11,000 to 22,000 marijuana cigarettes. Tashkin found that even the very heavy marijuana smokers showed no increased incidence of the three cancers studied.

"This is the largest case-control study ever done, and everyone had to fill out a very extensive questionnaire about marijuana use," he said. "Bias can creep into any research, but we controlled for as many confounding factors as we could, and so I believe these results have real meaning."

Tashkin's group at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA had hypothesized that marijuana would raise the risk of cancer on the basis of earlier small human studies, lab studies of animals, and the fact that marijuana users inhale more deeply and generally hold smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers -- exposing them to the dangerous chemicals for a longer time. In addition, Tashkin said, previous studies found that marijuana tar has 50 percent higher concentrations of chemicals linked to cancer than tobacco cigarette tar.

While no association between marijuana smoking and cancer was found, the study findings, presented to the American Thoracic Society International Conference this week, did find a 20-fold increase in lung cancer among people who smoked two or more packs of cigarettes a day.

Ah, the ever elusive 10k garden...Santa Clause the tooth fairy and the Easter Bunny have never been caught either...is there a theme here? Of course there is, 10k is a random fictitious number plucked out of the air to muddy the waters between "medical" MJ and Commercial MJ according to Think if it is not 10K plants it is NOT commercial!

Nice try but, "We the People" are more educated than that!

Absolutely! It may cost a lot, but we may gain a lot as well but getting rid of this element. Just to name a few....

1.Children who aren't raised surrounded by drugs
2.Lower crime rates
3.Higher property values because our neighbors won't be pot growers

Turn them in!

You are a joke! They did steal medicine. That's why they have to give it back to the patients in a lot of cases. By the way you say" all medical growers are gonna go to jail." You are ignorant and prejudice. It is legal to grow in California. That means people who grow medical pot don't go to jail. You are misinformed and stupid. Move to Mendocino County medical marijuana patients are welcome here!

It doesn't save any children you dolt! It does in fact hurt families and waste tax payer money that would be much better spent on educating the children. Pot is harmless. It is the greedy, thieves, ignorant people and unjust laws that hurts people and children. Wise up America!

Nope, just those 100-500 plant "personal use" gardens are being raided. Those pig headed officials harrassing these poor people. What's 300 plants to share among friends...I'm sure those people weren't selling.
