Superb One Liner

Go see Adam Gifford at Nga Korero o te Wa. . Oh, dear, I'm still laughing.

Hi,
just wondering if you will link to this cannabis - cancer story, just like you linked to the last one (10th October). This is some published research this time, not some unpublished research.

Anonymous, thanks for the link to "the other cannabis story".

This blog is not a dedicated Cannabis Information forum. Rest assured if we link to the occasional Cannabis story but ignore the hundreds of others, its not a conspiracy theory. Some stories are turned into posts simply because they catch an author's eye, and often for only one aspect.

At least it generated the debate...

I read the attached article. Another counter view, one of many no doubt. Sounded like the author went into the study with preconceived opinions, but that is not unusual. He did fess up:

"That's not to say smoking marijuana is good," Melamede noted. It is a lung irritant and can cause respiratory problems, such as coughing. Also, it is full of carcinogens, so "even if it's not causing cancer, it's having negative effects," he said.

And then went on to say using an inhaler/vaporiser might remove the nasty side effects.

Any-one interested, read it. SH are not trying to censure information, but we are not trying to search for a counter article for every thing we publish. The idea is, dear readers, you read a variety of sources, then make informed comments on the various threads on the various blogs so that other readers get a sense of the different views, evidence, research and opinions out there.

It is pointless trying to make out we are hypocritical not to publish counter articles to every post we do. That's not our mission. If you want a counterpoint to anything we read, go read the left wing blogs etc, and go do your own research. We aren't stopping you. I encourage you. But don't mistake or assign the wrong motives or standards to our efforts.
