One would think so. But, according to research, the expected link between lung cancer and pot (when smoked) is dubious
. Have a watch here as well
... you may be surprised!
Perhaps your gripe is against how the drug is commonly ingested... in joints. Same with me... I don't like walking into a room and breathing in someone else's intoxicating exhalations. I wish people could use a less anti-social way of taking it!
Plus pot is additive.
As SDW pointed out, it can be psychologically addictive. But as regards physical addiction and tolerance, pot causes little if any physical dependence. In fact many users have reported that in time, it takes less and less of the drug to get high.
Many things in common and legal use in western society are highly addictive... far more so that pot, ... and society isn't exactly too bothered. Tobacco products, alcohol, caffeine, a huge proportion of popular prescription drugs especially anti-depressants, painkillers, attention-deficit treatments... all powerful and addictive substances, far more addictive than pot, and in many cases, chemically far more toxic.
....then theres gambling, television, pornography, the internet, candy....
Which is not healthy.
Do you indulge in any of the above?
The ape shit left thinks there are carcinogens hiding behind every corner ... just not in pot. It's fucking stupid.
Where did you bring party politics into this? I gather you're a conservative.. and conservatism is (partly) about keeping the nanny government out of peoples' private affairs! Yes? No?
Relax, have a toke!
