I stand by the idea that people do stupid things that sometimes lead to death for or on pot. I agree that legalizing it should make things better, but that doesn't change the current reality.

Regarding where pot comes from, most experts seem to think at least 50% is imported (mostly from Mexico). Sorry, good ol US pot isn't as common or innocent as some want to believe, and the drug cartels are benefiting from our ignorance. See below:

Marijuana has no connection to cancer.
TCH reduces the carcinogenic affect...the vapor that comes from smoking MJ, contains less carcinogens than the actual plant itself. Tobacco does the opposite. When burned, there is more carcinogens in the smoke because the nicotine.
I never ever said that there is absolutely no danger associated with marijuana. but, i am saying it's a lot less than people think. I used to counsel drug addicts in college & had one guy who was a but mentally challenged. His drug of choice was heroin, but used MJ to try to keep off. It did not mix with him well. When he smoked it, his psychosis was increased big time. But, i'm talking about the average person here. Not someone who is nuts...
