    the medical effects of the cannabinoid drugs found in cannabis resins and the damage done by smoking anything. Actually the damage to living cells is far greater from the smoke, hot gasses and dangerous chemicals created by the rolling papers than the cannabinoids in the cannabis. In fact, cannabinoids have significant living cell protective properties.

    We have to move past this mythology that has been created around the obscure slang term marijuana and really start to discuss the effects of the active ingredients produced by the cannabis genus of plants. I believe you will conclude like I have that cannabinoids are some of the most therapeutic and least toxic substances known. The LD50 of all the more than 80 known cannabinoids exceed 40,000 times the effective dose...the LD50 of aspirin is just 16 times the effective dose by comparison.  

    Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull
