"smoking related cancers"

Discussion in 'General' started by Bananarama, Jan 3, 2013.

  1. This comes from WUSL the school I go to, ranked within the top 20 colleges so I was quite suprised:

    Marijuana

    Composed of dried leaves of the cannabis plant
    Contains THC, a chemical that alters perception
    Short-term effects: feelings of relaxation, paranoia, euphoria, slowed thinking and reaction time, confusion, impaired balance and coordination
    Long-term effects: memory loss, shortened attention span, colds, breathing problems, increased heart rate, apathy, weight gain, gynecomastia (males developing breasts), and smoking related cancers

  2. If I smoke ill develop breasts? Godammit...
     
  3. Well, smoke in your lungs isn't a good thing at all. I honestly don't get where people think because it's a natural plant the smoke won't have a long-term affect on your lungs. Smoke is smoke I agree it's no where as bad as cigarette smoke but still. Maybe it's just me.

    Yeah smokes definitely bad. The reason I think people get so confused is because although the smoke is bad for you, some studies have shown that thc may reduce cancer cell growth and thus the risk of cancer is seemingly lowered. But I don't think that it actually is ha. Where's storm crow?

    Hon, send me an email! (bottom of my sig) You NEED a copy of my List. It has most of those articles and hundreds more! Once you get your PDF, you can forward it to all of your friends, so all of you can do those papers on cannabis or the endocannabinoid system that you've always planned on doing! It really helps to have all of your research already done for you! :yay:
