    I'ver sat with gurus in India and lived with the holy weed for thirty years and my conclusion is that ganga is used as a shortcut to to the hard work that is enlightenment. Why do we in the West always look for the easy way?

    Yep, I don't smoke anymore and I have learned so much...... Ahh but I needed smoke to realise this....

    Marijuana Smoking Doesn't Kill

    Illegal Herb Not Harmless, but Data Show No Link to Death By Daniel J. DeNoon
    WebMD Health News

    Sept. 18, 2003 -- Marijuana smoking isn't harmless, but at least it won't kill you.

    It's been feared that marijuana smoke, like tobacco smoke, causes cancer andheart disease. The evidence argues otherwise, writes Stephen Sidney, MD, associate director for research for Kaiser Permanente, Oakland, Calif., in the Sept 20 issue of The British Medical Journal.

    "Although the use of [marijuana] is not harmless, the current knowledge base does not support the assertion that it has any notable adverse public health impact in relation to mortality," Sidney concludes.

    No Marijuana Deaths in 2 Large Studies

    Sidney points to two large studies. The first is from (where else?) California. A large HMO looked at 65,177 men and women age 15-49. Over 10 years, marijuana users died no sooner than nonusers.

    The second study looked at 45,450 Swedish army conscripts. They were 18-20 years old when asked about marijuana use. Fifteen years later, the marijuana users were just as likely to remain alive as nonusers.

    And since marijuana smoking can't kill outright -- there's no such thing as a fatal marijuana overdose -- short-term use isn't deadly. Long-term use can't be good for you. But Sidney notes that most marijuana smokers don't become long-term users.

    One worry about marijuana smoke is that it is inhaled, and held, deep in the lungs. But the typical user smokes only one marijuana cigarette -- or less -- a day. Tobacco users often smoke 20 or more cigarettes daily. Moreover, tobacco contains nicotine, a highly addictive substance. Marijuana, Sidney concludes, is less likely to harm than tobacco.

    A 2001 study suggested that marijuana smoking increases the risk of heart attackin the hour immediately after smoking. But this seems to be the case in no more than one-fifth of 1% of heart attacks -- a very rare risk indeed.

    More Marijuana Deaths in the Future?

    Marijuana users shouldn't cancel their life insurance policies just yet. Sidney warns that longer-term data may indeed show that marijuana smoking eventually raises the risk of premature death.

    And if marijuana is legalized, long-term use may become more common. If this is the case, there certainly will be more long-term effects of marijuana use.

    So glad I live in Holland. Here you can buy it legal in a coffeeshop.

    We consider it the same as drinking alcohol.

    Just smoke it but not every day...

  • Mando8000

    Blah blah blah all you people have is opinions, and if your saying its harmfull then maybe alcohol should be illegal 2 because as far as im concerned alcohol has a huge lead on deaths as well as your beloved legal tabacco. The conclusion is this use it in moderation and use it were it is legal until these morans realize it should be legal everywhere.

    Again, some news reports is still coming out with the most ignorant knowledge of pot. It is not by law classified as narcodic. I dare anyone find that SCIENTIFICALLY classified as such.
