US GOV'T: REGULAR MARIJUANA USE HELPS TO PREVENT SOME FORMS OF CANCER.
We SHOULD legalize marijuana, however that will probably never happen because the feds would have no way of controlling it.
Sorry to dredge up an old topic, but here's a story that was published at about the time of this thread:If Pot Prevented Cancer You Would Have Read About It, Right?
Two just-published studies assessing adults' risk of cancer have reported wildly divergent, and fairly extraordinary, outcomes. One study you may have read about. The other has been ignored entirely by the mainstream media. But no doubt the results of both will surprise you.
First, the study you may have heard of. Writing August 3 in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, investigators at McGill University in Montreal reported that moderate alcohol consumption -- defined as six drinks or fewer per week -- by adults is positively associated with an elevated risk of various cancers, including stomach cancer, rectal cancer, and bladder cancer.And now for the study you haven't heard of. Writing in the August issue of the journal Cancer Prevention Research, investigators from Rhode Island's Brown University, along with researchers at Boston University, Louisiana State University, and the University of Minnesota reported that lifetime marijuana use is associated with a "significantly reduced risk" of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma.
