This!!!

A friend of ours has ongoing back problems. The kind where ... yeah, he could have surgery but it probably wouldn't help.

He uses the CBD-rich marijuana and find it provides real relief.

There exists a politically-driven injunction against studying whether marijuana (either the CBD or the T??) provides any medical benefit. That is something we need to blame earlier politicians for, and need to reverse ASAP. It is a potentially beneficial substance - why not study it's potential benefits?!?!?

Would they be any worse than the opiod epidemic now happening?

I can understand where people come to the conclusion that pot is less harmful than alcohol, but I can't imagine the smoking of anything being healthy.

One of the 60 somethings I've known and partied with for a years is a very heavy pot and cigarette smoker. He's had a few health issues, nothing probably related to the smoking, but even if he quit the cigs, I can't imagine the MJ not being unhealthy.

the difference between MJ and tobacco use is the hundreds of chemicals used in manufacturing cigarettes. MJ is just that pot. Yes smoke inhalation in general is bad for you but unless you are in a 24/7 state of smoke your lungs are able to process the particulates properly.

"long term loss of short term memory" That's always been a known effect of pot. I can say it does recover if you stop imbibing.

Again, pot smokers would rather put up with the short term memory loss than to quit.

No, short term loss of short term memory is the truth. You are correct in that it is reversible if you stop using. Reversal can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

The man boob thing, like the lowering of testosterone, is a myth used by prohibitionists to discourage use. I know, it is sometimes hard to separate the truth from the propaganda and misinformation on both sides.

Yeah. At AA they say remove ALL drugs from your repertoire, IIRC drug treatment says the same thing.

If you're addictive to feel-good drugs, you're addictive to feel-good drugs. If MJ affects memory, guess what, ditch the reefer madness.
