Let me start by saying I am far from anti pot. I have no issue with it if its done legally, and if you do it illegally-not my problem. Do your thing.


SO has asthma and he takes meds as needed for it (last night- ER, steroids).

SOs friend is a die-hard marijuana advocate and smokes legally here in Michigan. He finds himself downing pharmaceuticals (I agree with most of what he says) and saying weed is the end -all for every disease (I don't believe that).

This friend is yelling at SO on the phone for taking the drugs the doc gave him in ER and said he should've just smoked pot instead of seeing a doctor. Ludicrous.

Yes, some drugs can be replaced by weed if you choose that route. Asthma? Maybe, but weed is also not the cure for EVERYTHING.


Stop it.

All of those sites are anti-drug sites. They have the same anti-drug agenda.

Marijuana has never been linked to causing cancer. Lots of legal thig have been, though. Alcohol, tobacco, GMOs, pesticides...the list goes on.

No need to respond, I'm not having an argument with some anonymous person on the interweb about something she doesn't understand - I've got errands to run. Have a nice day!

Really? There are many sources to back that, you silly lady. If you wanna smoke it, more power to you. I will take my chances with not smoking it.

I don't see how that's possible...anytime I have ever smoked pot it burned 10 times worse than a cigarette and I coughed way more after smoking pot. Pot smoke has 50-70%  more cancer causing chemicals in it than cigarette smoke and you hold the smoke much longer in your lungs.

That's how I feel. I may be wrong because they say weed relaxes your throat muscles and helps airflow but come on...

Yea, smoking anything will exacerbate asthma. That's dumb.

Legit peer reviewed scholarly articles not websites. I would fail a paper miserably if I tried to use those. Also there are a ton of actually articles that would say the total opposite of what you said. When you look at studies you have to see who is funding it etc. a lot of the time its either a ciggarette company or an alcohol company.

I agree. Sure, it has beneficial properties, but it isn't a miraculous cure-all for everything. I do think it should be legal for use, like alcohol, but as a medication it has its limits.

First rule of research is never use a website with an agenda! Those are anti drug websites of course they are going to change the facts to suit their needs. You can never trust information from someone researching from a bias point. Look at studies that are done from people where it doesn't matter either way what the results are.

Ugh! It's always a treat when someone regurgitates something for the 10 millionth time. Real original.
