When you walk through the hall ways of Moffitt and other Cancer centers you can't get away from the horrific images of people of all ages, all backgrounds and ho are trying to overcome Cancer!

In my families case the number one cause seems to be that the entire family was smoking inside the house since the birth. Back in the days it wasn't so well known how second hand smoke could cause serious issues.

Now we know.

Smoking electronic sigarettes will soon be proven to cause harm as nicotine seems to be part of this form of usuagw.

Marijuana is often smoked and is there a difference between regular sigarettes and smoking a blunt?

Please advise your family members and let them walk through a Cancer Center and see what smoking can do to Your body.

What will happen to th cost of health insurance?
Marijuana is rarely smoked all day long as tobacco cigarettes are. If Marijuana use decreases alcohol use, many medical problems will be prevented. It is the alcohol companies that aggressively lobby against the legalization of marijuana. I wonder why.

Now would you have the same enjoyment if we all didn't have a few js's together but instead with something with actual nutritional values such as fruit juice or something? That's right, you wouldn't. In order for you to be happy you have to use something that disconnects you in a way from actual reality.

Yeah, there's some real mopes who've altered their realities:

Sigmund Freud : Cocaine

Steve Jobs: LSD

Carl Sagan: Cannabis

Francis Frick: LSD

Bill Gates: LSD

Richard Feynman: LSD, Cannabis

Thomas Jefferson: Laudanum

Benjamin Franklin: Laudanum

Marcus Aurelius: Opium

Thomas Edison: Wine laced with coca leaves

Are you in support of making tobacco cigarettes illegal?

The pharma industry is also a big opponent.

They will fight tooth and nail to prevent legalized marijuana, but when it came to Govt regulating their opiate painkillers back in 2012, NOT A SINGLE pharma company tried to legally challenge it..??!! Pharma was willing to hand over its opiate profits to the drug cartels.

Thru all this though, you can see who the big players are, apparently the drug cartels have MUCH more power and influence in our govt. They are the ones who ultimately benefit from drug laws, they even have their own federal lobbying agency, the DEA.

The 60s and 70s should have proven that the ones at the top of the drug trade...is the CIA.

So if I name a bunch of people who've jumped off a bridge, will you jump off a bridge too?

BTW - I heard through the grapevine that Santa Claus does snow.

Except when you're doing something they don't approve of, then they're all in for prohibition.

Until you support some of your allegations like "The "high" is the direct short term result of killing brain cells." with FACTS I simply wouldn't believe anything you told me, unlike those druggies I listed who are credible.
