    I've heard that pot is worse for your lungs than regular cigarettes.

    I've never smoked pot either - or eaten it - but I agree it should be treated like alcohol. But I think it won't be legalized anytime soon because what politician wants to have on his or her record that they voted to legalize pot?

    That's simply not true.

    Re: Cincinnati Visit: Drug Czar Calls Pot A Danger To Kids

    This article seems somewhat balanced on the issue:
    http://www.cancer.ca/ccs/internet/st...gId-en,00.html


    These articles says, it definetly causes cancer
    http://www.cnn.com/HEALTH/9808/18/marijuana.cancer/
    http://www.well.com/user/woa/fspot.htm


    This article has a study that disputes the cancer risk, but notes increased heart attack risk
    http://my.webmd.com/content/article/23/1728_57309

    This article claims THC is not carcinogenic
    http://www.pdxnorml.org/Globe_mj_cancer_013097.html


    I tried to get a balanced report.. however, it doesn't appear that the articles denying the cancer
    risk are denying that there is proven carcinogens in pot (same ones that exist in cigarettes).

    Sure, both sides have an agenda to promote.. So you have to be careful.

    Again, I believe it does cause cancer, but I'll leave it up to you to make your own call.
    There's a ton of other stuff on the web about this.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I agree. From what I had heard/read in the past, marijuana smoke was "cleaner" than cigarette smoke.

    From one of the links above

    Can marijuana cause cancer?
    Marijuana smoke has been found to contain more cancer-causing agents than is found in tobacco smoke. Examination of human lung tissue that had been exposed to marijuana smoke over a long period of time in a laboratory showed cellular changes called metaplasia that are considered precancerous. In laboratory test, the tars from marijuana smoke have produced tumors when applied to animal skin. These studies suggest that it is likely that marijuana may cause cancer if used for a number of years.

    I don't have a hard time believing it's not good for you, I just don't think they're as harmful (in a cancer causing way) as cigarettes.

    I smoked more pot then all of you put together.

    And "No", I don't think it should be legalized. But I do think it should be de-criminalized to a point.
