    well can you provide a link as well please, so that people can actually read for themselves; then take research one step further?

    i'm interested in the source of this hype.

    i think it's bullshit seeing as how they've done massive studies on weed as it relates to cancer and have found that in every case i've ever seen it not only lowers the rate of getting cancer, but also speeds recovery. look at the wikipedia page on cannabis and it will cite a study involving mice and rats that were force fed cannabinoids through corn oil. this is not hte only one. i heard recently thc will actually attack the cancer cells.

    I'm sure it's on the web somewhere, but I read it in the guardian newspaper (english).

    Sorry I can't give more details.

    no problem, if you read it in the guardian then they'll definitely have the same story somewhere on their web site - a story of this nature is very significant, especially regarding the amount of people that smoke it..

    although the guardian's a very liberal newspaper.

    The thing with studies like these is

    All the potheads are just going to immediately dismiss it as bullshit because they don't want to believe it

    and all the anti-drug people are just going to immediately accept it so they have ammunition to use against the potheads

    I heard this story on NPR's Morning Edition, but I can't find it on the playlist of today's show. Here's the Guardian link, and a Medical Journal, neither of which I have read.

    Anyhow, the story I heard said that while there was an increased occurrence of some rare form of testicular cancer in pot smokers, especially in those who started smoking pot early, there was no evidence of a causal relationship between pot smoking & cancer.

    I'm gonna go do a bong hit and play with my nuts now.

    edit:can you tell I'm on dial-up? took me half an hour to find those links.

    as much pot as I smoke, and as much as I play with my nuts, I'll let you guys know as soon as I find something wrong with them, and I'll post pics too


    just don't hold your breath, because this study was about as scientific as using your finger to measure temperature in a pan of boiling water
