Sounds like a government sponsored study with a pre determined outcome by a group with a political agenda.

Government says whatever they want too. How I look at it you start dieing the day your born might as well enjoy yourself when your alive. Legalize is the way to go!!!!!!

Strokes aren't caused by marijuana use. Strokes are caused by blockages. Marijuana just speeds up your heart rate

All but 1 person having a stroke used tobacco, which is known to cause strokes. Not able to find and other users of only marijuana having a stroke for the study. Sounds like a quack committing fraud to push his immoral ideas. Fake studies prove only that a fraud pretended to study something.
