Slowly, one by one, over the past 50 years, almost every non-scientific myth about marijuana has been disproven.

First, it turned you into an axe murderer. Then people wised up that that was bullshit.

Then, it caused males to grow breasts. Then people wised up to that.

Then, it killed brain cells. People still believe this, but it's not actually true. (Alcohol does, most other drugs do not.)

Then, it was a gateway drug. But the gateway drugs for most people are actually alcohol, nicotine, caffeine, and prescriptions (prescription drug abuse VASTLY outnumbering street drug abuse).

Then, "oh, the smoke is so much worse than cigarette smoke because you breathe it in deeper", and other such associated bullshit.

Except a 20 year study now proves that wrong. For occasional users, anyway. For heavy users -- sometimes there are still problems. It's possible to overdo anything.

But the argument that marijuana can't be used as medicine because it's too dangerous to be smoked not only ignores the evidence in this study, but the fact that you don't have to smoke marijuana. You can vaporize or eat it! You can grow it in your house for free. That's a huge threat to companies that sell us painkiller drugs.

But the smoke? Not nearly as bad for your lungs as cigarettes -- which remain legal (and should remain legal), and kill 350,000 a year.

Correlation is not causation - but this is something i've been saying for a long time. Hell, if you got every person who drank alcohol to do cocaine instead, there'd be less deaths and life expectancy would increase. But society is not nearly up to the level of understanding that. Society's kind of retarded, that guy.

Anyone who knows more about biology wanna chime on on this? The corps don't want to go down this route because it's not patentable, and there's no money to be had for curing people. This is why national health care is better - the burden is to be cheap to reduce tax burden. Private health care's burden is to be expensive to prop up the corporation. (and of course national doesn't criminalize private, so you get both if you have some money left over to pay for private).

Abrahamic religions are evil perversions of previous religions. They spread like a virus because men rewrote them to be male religions, giving themselves more power, and allowing for more fanatacism.

Fuck Abraham.
Fuck Jesus.
Fuck Allah.
Fuck Jehova.
All your religions are belong to bullshit.

God's words don't get to be rewritten by man. But it doesn't matter because they weren't God's words anyway.

Great new study confirming what many of us already knew - marijuana is medicine, and the government is causing people to die by preventing its use. It's free, and poor people who can't afford insurance can simply grow a weed that may save them. The corporations don't want that.

It's sad that we had to wait until video games were around long enough that the people who played them would grow up and become researchers in order to come up with such an obvious conclusion as this one.
