here's a weed fact..

"Although the misuse of over the counter medications such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and antihistamines each year kills hundreds of Americans, not a single death has ever been credibly attributed directly to smoking or consuming marijuana in the 5,000 years of the plants recorded use. Marijuana is one of the few therapeutically active substances known to man for which there is no well-defined fatal dose. It has been estimated that a person would have to smoke a 100 pounds of marijuana a minute for 15 minutes in order to induce a fatal response."

But as already stated, smoking ANYTHING isn't good for you ever. However that's not the argument. It's HOW bad is weed for you?

well....

The physician Donald Tashkin, of the University of California at Los Angeles Medical Center, has done a study of people who have smoked 4 or 5 joints a day for more than ten years, an has found substantial evidence that marijuana smoke can cause chronic bronchitis, changes in cells of the central airway which are potentially pre- cancerous, and an impairment in scavenger-cell function, which could lead to greater risk of respiratory infection. A joint seems to deliver 4 times as much carcinogenic tar as a tobacco cigarette of the same size. Smoking both greatly increases the risk of developing emphysema, cancer and other lung diseases. Tashkin expects that some heavy marijuana users will eventually suffer cancers of the mouth, throat, and lungs, although none of his research subjects has yet developed a malignancy. Oddly enough the more potent strains of marijuana may prove less dangerous, since less of them is needs to be smoked.

Moral of the story.... if you're going to smoke, smoke good pot!

I'm out.
