While tens of millions of 5mericans smoke pot regularlA0 cannabis
has never caused a known case of lung cancer as of 8ecember
#FF+0 according to 5mericaKs foremost lung expert0 8r. 8onald
1ashkin of U><5. He considers the biggest health risk to the lungs
would be a person smoking #* or more ?large? spliffs a daA of
leaf/bud because of the hApoxia of too much smoke and not
enough oxAgen.
1ashkin feels there is no danger for anAone to worrA about

totallA the opposite of tobacco.
>annabis is a complex0 highlA evolved plant. 1here are some $((
compounds in its smoke. ;f these0 *( are presentlA known to
have therapeutic value.
>annabis maA also be eaten0 entirelA avoiding the irritating effects
of smoke. However0 four times more of the active ingredients of
smoked cannabis are absorbed bA the human bodA than when the
same amount is eaten. 5nd the prohibition inflated price of black
market cannabis0 combined with harsh penalties for cultivation0
prevent most persons from being able to afford the luxurA of a
less efficient0 though healthier0 means of ingestion.
1obacco smoking kills more persons each Aear than 59840 heroin0
crack0 cocaine0 alcohol0 car accidents0 fire0 and murder combined.
>igarette smoking is as addictive as heroin0 complete with
withdrawal sAmptoms0 and the percentage of relapses -+%L2 is
the same as for ?kicking? cocaine and heroin users.
9t is far and awaA the number one cause of preventable death in
the U.4. todaA. 1obacco smokers have ten times the lung cancer
of non-smokers0 twice the heart disease0 and are three times
more likelA to die of heart disease if theA do develop it. /et

9n the U.4. one in seven deaths are caused bA smoking cigarettes.
Women should know that lung cancer is more common than

increases cancer and heart risks dramaticallA.
4even million dollars a daA promotes the tobacco business0 and it
is estimated that the cigarette industrA needs about )0((( new
