Almost like you're excited about it. Weird.

Where is the OP's scientific methodology and research to back up these bizarre medical assertions?

Then you'll have no trouble supplying a link to an in-depth study that made that conclusion, right?

What type of Cancer did you have?

It is amazing to read that someone claimed to have cured from Cancer and than starts smoking and sounds like promoting that behavior!

If you have been at any Cancer facility and sees the tragedies of Cancer than your post is shocking to read.

Of course if it is true that you are cured that is great news.

Btw I never smoked more than a few cigarettes as a young teenager often tend to do and btw where I lived there was no minimum age at the time so not illegal.

Luckily I never liked to smoke and frankly rather saved my money for anything else at the time that I was making money.

Of course there are people who get cancer without having smoked.

Learning about Bladder Cancer and smoking and only knowing about Lung Cancer being known for the major factor of smoking, opened my eyes even more.

Bladder Cancer is in the top ten for men and women and smoking and arsenic in water as well as many high level of exposure to certain paints and dye is what is causing this terrible illness.

I was wondering if Marijuana is having the same effects to increase the chances of getting this and other Cancers.

Read the article and free to put whatever inside your body as it is your decision, not mine. Just be careful to expose your loved ones to what is your choice and ask if that the increase risks of Cancer is what they are signing up for.

The family members who are all dead now, didn't know back than what their habits could have contribute to, but they knew it was bad as in the seventies and later most warning came out very strong. Unfortunately many people, including them, were so addicted to tobacco.

I am not expert on Marijuana, but logic would suggest that tar, and other toxins would be caused by inhaling burnt marijuana also.

The idiotic placement of cannabis in the same group as heroin impedes researching many things about it.

You have quite obviously never heard of the government lung expert who was paid by your tax dollars to do years of research in order to prove smoking marijuana causes lung cancer. After all that research, he was forced to admit that smoking marijuana does not cause lung cancer.

It has already happened in my state of Mass. where a guy got his medical pot, smoked it in the parking lot which is "not allowed" and drove into a state trooper that had made a traffic stop killing him.

We have enough problems with distracted drivers and adding pot to the list of impairments is going to do nothing but increase the carnage.

At least on the bright side if I do get run over by a pot head and I survive I can smoke dope to ease my pain without fear of being arrested.
Then let's make alcohol illegal too.

Oh and radios in car, eating in cars, phones in cars, talking in cars, all that has at some point killed somebody.

FTR, I don't partake of either tobacco nor marijuana myself, but guys? - do try to join the real world.

For one thing, it's not the 1960s any more. Edibles and vapes are in, firing up an old-school joint in the way of the Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers is how grandma did it. For another, even those who do smoke don't chain-smoke the way cigarette smokers do.

People may be having fun in ways you don't approve of, and I realize that for some it's a horrid thought, but I think you may just have to find a way to cope.
