How are all those potheads get their "pain medicine" for all their little boo-boos?

I'm sure these "saints" had it in the goodness of their hearts to make sure all this dope would go to cancer patients and not to all the addicts who need their dope.

First of all no one is advocating legalization of marijuana for young people, your first link is about young people. This whole debate is about adults and the decisions they make. These links are simply maufactured BS funded by tobacco and alcohol companies....and the nanny-like intrusive republicans.

Ashtari added that the findings are preliminary. Among other limitations of the study, such as a small sample size, five of the 14 subjects with heavy cannabis use also had a history of alcohol abuse, which may have contributed an effect. Also, it is possible that the brain abnormalities may have predisposed the subjects to drug dependence, rather than drug usage causing the brain abnormalities.

Okay, before I start giving a million examples, please clarify what you mean by "without causing damage". What type of damage are you referring to?

Hello Mark,
If I may...albeight your comment may be true, bear in mind that it also applies to almost everything we ingest including food and legal prescription drugs. Frankly, I'm also a lot more concerned about using something like prescription Vicodin for my back pain than Cannibus and they both produce the same result. I can't explain why but I wish the government would allow proper studies so we would all know more.
Also, when Cannibus was made illegal the paper/pulp industry also lobbied and successfully got Hemp included. There was no reason other than money to have Hemp made illegal. It has no THC content worth mentioning but has endless uses.

Actually, there's a far far greater problem...babies being born addicted. Not to Cannibus but the Prescrition drugs their mothers took. Why can't you see where the real problem lies??

Exactly. You can't go through a McDonald's drive thru without causing damage. You can't have a sip of alcohol without it causing damage.

If that's their basis for keeping it illegal then the only substances the government should allow us to ingest are rice cakes and water.

Immunization shots of all types can be both helpful and in certain cases harmful. We, as a society and through science, weigh those cases and determine if the risk outweighs the rewards. Ultimately, some will suffer negative reactions but the intent is for the greater good.
Cannibus was used by Humans for Centuries and only 50 years ago became illegal. Unfortunately, the myths presented when it was made illegal, still abound, and are mis-used today to misinform the public.
Hopefully, one day soon, those myths will be overcome by reason and logic.

If there were ANY medicinal value to pot of any kind, then you potheads could take it in pill form.

And wait for tht medicine to take effect? What for when you can smoke it and get the benefits almost immediately? You shouldn't be able to tell me what I can do as an adult in my own home as long as it doesn't harm another human being. I have my card and I am legal. Come try and take my card or my rights away....

This substance may not have been thoroughly tested to find out how it interacts with medicines, foods, herbs, or supplements. Even though some reports of interactions and harmful effects may be published, full studies of interactions and effects are not often available. Because of these limitations, any information on ill effects and interactions below should be considered incomplete.

Smoking or eating raw marijuana can cause a number of effects, including feelings of euphoria, short-term memory loss, difficulty in completing complex tasks, changes in the perception of time and space, sleepiness, anxiety, confusion, and inability to concentrate. In studies, cannabinoids have been linked with dizziness, depression, paranoia, and hallucinations. Other side effects include low blood pressure, rapid heart beat, and heart palpitations. Instances of death are rare. A review of studies looked at cannabinoid use in chemotherapy patients and found that one in eleven would stop using it because of side effects.

Many researchers agree that marijuana contains known carcinogens, or chemicals that can cause cancer. Results of epidemiologic studies of marijuana and cancer risk have been inconsistent, and most recent epidemiologic studies have not found a substantial effect on cancer risk. However, some researchers caution that these studies are difficult to conduct, as some people may not be truthful about illegal habits such as smoking marijuana, and that these negative results should not be interpreted as convincing evidence of safety. They caution that smoking marijuana may decrease reproductive function, cause lung disease, and increase the risk of cancer of the lungs, mouth, and tongue. It may also suppress the body's immune system and increase the risk of leukemia in children whose mothers smoke marijuana during pregnancy. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use marijuana."

Please present proper peer reviewed documentation in conjunction with such a comment.
Or are we to accept a random, unproven opinion, nothing more, as fact?

Got to love it when someone tries to win an argument by saying "Many researchers agree...". Is that all you got? Many researchers used to agree that mercury was a cure for syphilis. Guess what, they were wrong.

What benefits? All the potheads keep claiming it does nothing to the smoker, so how can it have any kind of benefit?

Why do you care how someone chooses to injest Cannibus?
Why do you feel it necessary to tell them how to live their lives?

I'm all for legalizing pot. Potheads can try and base their arguments on the medical "merits" and all that conscientious hooha. They just want to get high.

It's not much different than alcohol - accept at this point the pot-peddlers are the only ones generating wealth. Legalize it and that wealth hits the free market - honest wealth is generated, along with revenue - and the criminals can go pound dirt.
