  •  conflicting studies (1+ / 0-)

    I'm no student of this, but I gather there are conflicting studies.  For example:

    ScienceDaily (Jan. 27, 2008) — A new study finds that the development of bullous lung disease occurs in marijuana smokers approximately 20 years earlier than tobacco smokers.

    A condition often caused by exposure to toxic chemicals or long-term exposure to tobacco smoke, bullous lung disease (also known as bullae) is a condition where air trapped in the lungs causes obstruction to breathing and eventual destruction of the lungs.

    Even the "Related Stories" sidebar of that article links to conflicting studies.  I do not mean to stand in judgment; I admired Ben.  But I would like to know if and how he confronted these questions.
