Pot Doesn't Increase Cancer Risk

In yet another study on marijuana the results were surprising and probably not very pleasing to the bush administration who considers all pot smokers to be supportive of terrorism. I think their are people becoming seriously addicted to marijuana studies.

People who smoke marijuana may be at less risk of developing lung cancer than tobacco smokers, according to a new study.

Bloomberg news reports that in a study of 2,200 people in Los Angeles even heavy marijuana smokers were no more likely to develop lung, head or neck cancer than non-users, in contrast with tobacco users, whose risk increases the more they smoke.

Medicinal Marijuana


The findings are a surprise because marijuana smoke has some of the same cancer-causing substances as tobacco smoke, often in higher concentrations, said the senior researcher, Donald Tashkin, a professor at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California-Los Angeles.

One possible explanation is that THC, a key ingredient in marijuana not present in tobacco, may inhibit tumor growth, he said in an interview.
Oops. What was that last part? Medicinal marijuana may actually have a use? What will GW do now? Probably declare the people that did this study as connected to Al Queda.
