  1. I wonder if they were high when they took the poll…’cause that’d be the only way anyone would be foolish enough to rank marijuana less harmful than tobacco or alcohol, right?

    That guy from the WSJ had a pretty steady perma grin on…..

  3. Inhaling any type of smoke can cause lung cancer.

    • Except cannabis smoke. No one is sure why yet. Regardless, inhaling smoke is unhealthy and there are studies that link cannabis smoke to other breathing problems like chronic bronchitis.
      Also, note that erisbot said vaporizing, which doesn’t involve combustion, so smoke is a moot point here.

      • Ah, my mistake. I missed the “vapes.” I also did a Google and there’s evidence that cannabis smoke not only doesn’t cause lung cancer but reduces a person’s chance of it. Interesting. I wonder if vaporizing is more or less effective at preventing cancer.

    How about polling people about whether or not they think it is fucked up that someone else can decide what they do to their own bodies, including putting substances in it….

    That quip at the end just sums up where these douches heads are at. Even with all that is going on in America re. pro-Juana and the results of this survey he still couldn’t help himself. Heads up his hole
