"'Smoke is smoke. Both tobacco and marijuana smoke impair blood vessel function similarly,' said study senior author Matthew Springer, a cardiovascular researcher and associate professor of medicine in the university's cardiology division. 'People should avoid both, and governments who are protecting people against secondhand smoke exposure should include marijuana in those rules.' Blood vessel function in laboratory rats dropped by 70 percent after a half-hour of exposure to secondhand marijuana smoke -- similar to results found with secondhand tobacco smoke, researchers from the University of California, San Francisco reported Sunday."

Cool story, Bro.

Let us know when tobacco has any medicinal benefits, and when cannabis kills 160,000 Americans every year.

Which is why I wouldn't smoke around other people indoors.......

Again, why punish responsible people because of the irresponsible behavior of a small minority?

We know so little about what marijuana does...but people don't do it as often as tobacco.

I hope they legalize it so people stop going to jail for years for selling it...then I hope people research its affects extensively, and advertise them all in the same way the negatives of cigarettes are advertised.

The only reason I'm not sickened by the "cannabis is all about peace and love and it's a wonder drug that will make all your problems go away" culture is that culture attacks the "cannabis is of the devil and you deserve to be shot for selling it" culture.

I want both the "let's glorify cannabis" culture and the "Let's go shoot everyone who sells cannabis" culture to die. However, I want the "Let's go shoot everyone who sells cannabis" culture to die considerably more than the other one...so for now, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Whooo! Yay Pot! Everybody smoke pot for freedom!"

Hopefully, society will begin the destruction of the marijuana-glorifying culture once the marijuana-was-invented-by-satan culture is gone.

So is the net takeaway here that tobacco products should be illegal? if you look at statistics, it is far more lethal than cannabis, and alcohol combined.
