Cannabis is less densely packed than tobacco cigarettes, and tends to be smoked without filters to a smaller butt size, leading to higher concentrations of smoke inhaled.

"Furthermore, smokers of cannabis inhale more deeply and hold their breath for longer, facilitating the deposition of the carcinogenic products in the lower respiratory tract. These factors are likely to be responsible for the five-fold greater absorption of carbon monoxide from a cannabis joint, compared with a tobacco cigarette of similar size despite similar carbon monoxide concentrations in the smoke inhaled. Several studies have demonstrated pre-cancerous histological and molecular abnormalities in the respiratory tracts of cannabis smokers, and the carcinogenic effects of cannabis smoke have been demonstrated in vitro."

Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals, including 43 known cancer-causing (carcinogenic) compounds and 400 other toxins. Which include nicotine, tar, and carbon monoxide, as well as formaldehyde, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, arsenic, and DDT.

Thanks. But I'll continue to smoke what your G-d created, rather than what man adulterated.

The bible has killed many, many millions more people than cannabis ever will.

100% organic is always better than chemically or emotionally induced compounds.

Wonder what it means when it says you have been read 3 million times?


What is it, like 60 people MIGHT have read what you wrote?


Probably not even that.


I remember some guy kept bragging that he was right because he thought 1 million people were reading every post of his lol.

Well, it IS interesting. Apparently our inanities here get shared at least, however much difference that might make. I calculated an average per post and it really is impressive.

To echo my Dad's favourite philosophical musing: Ya' never know.

Besides Hanni, he's still a kid. Plenty of time to change his mind and life path a few times.

He is an extremely strange child, he is just like me, and my oldest son is just like my Dad. He is a brilliant very intelligent person, he is just really strange like a savant or something, and I am real proud of him but He never wants to leave Korea, he thinks it's his home.
