    Heroin has medicinal uses too.  That doesn't mean it should be legal for recreational use.
    No one is suggesting that it should.  

    Heroin is a powerful opiate narcotic that has no legal medical use in the US. Outside of the US, pharmaceutical grade heroin is still produced for limited therapeutic use. It is occasionally prescribed for severe pain in countries such as the United Kingdom.


    The dangers of heroin are well documented by the numerous deaths occurring with it's use.


    The danger of cannabis is getting arrested.

    Cancer will never be cured or eliminated. 
     It can be reduced in certain ways.

    If they try to sell it here for more than they sell it there it should be banned.
    But it is the only drug that will save your mother's life. 

    Still want to ban it?
    OK they can sell it to Mom, but no one else.

    But my religion forbids me from allowing her to have it.  I'm the only one with it. What now?

    National Cancer Institute releases study showing cannabis kills cancer …

    http://https//www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/cannabis-pdq 

    • Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.
    • A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.
    • A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.
    • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.
    • A review of 34 studies of cannabinoids in glioma tumor models found that all but one study showed that cannabinoids can kill cancer cells without harming normal cells.
    • A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.

    A Men’s Health Study proves that cannabis can potentially kill cancer: An analysis of 84,170 participants looked at the association between cannabis use and the occurrence of bladder cancer. Over 16 years, they found 89 Cannabis users developed bladder cancer compared with 190 of the men who did not report cannabis use. After dividing the study up by age, race, ethnicity, and body mass index, cannabis use was associated with a 45% reduction in bladder cancer incidence.

    In conclusion, many studies have shown the potential of cannabis being able to kill cancer cells. However, little of these studies have been tested on humans. Only a handful of clinical trials have been held with humans, so it is too soon to say if the effects will work as well in humans. The good news is work is being done, and the topic is gaining interest among researchers.

    Company drug policies on pot will die pretty quick if pot was legal. Let a secretary, a line cook, and a bank teller get fired for partaking of a legal substance on their own time and as soon as a couple lawsuts go through, they HR people will not wait around for the printers. They will be running around frantically with sharpie pens.

    Happening now. If you make over 40K a year, don't operate a chipper shredder and are tested at your job - what sucky job or public union do you belong to?

    OK … 480,000 . I was rounding up. 

    Cigarette smoking causes about one of every five deaths in the United States each year.1,6 Cigarette smoking is estimated to cause the following:1

    • More than 480,000 deaths annually (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
    • 278,544 deaths annually among men (including deaths from secondhand smoke)
    • 201,773 deaths annually among women (including deaths from secondhand smoke)

    Now go enjoy a nice fat cigar since I was not precise enough for your delicate sensibilities. 
    Heck, why not enjoy two of them.
