In response to ghostofjri37's comment:
Interesting reading... Also the side effects and risks are to be determined by the patient. Especially the psychological effects. these are impossible to predict.
One item I must object to is the comparison of marijuana smoke to Tobacco smoke. this is beyond humorous. The statement on the risk:
"Marijuana smoke contains 50 percent to 70 percent more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than does tobacco smoke and has the potential to cause cancer of the lungs and respiratory tract. Marijuana smoke is commonly inhaled deeper and held longer than is tobacco smoke, increasing the lungs' exposure to carcinogens."
LOL... 50-70% . Got it. Wow that seems like a lot. Cept...maybe it might have something to do with the density of the smoke...? or the temperature of the smoked material...? Or the quality , or the brand of tobacco ,....etc. Dumb.
Then the second part which is behavioral... smoke is inhaled deeper and held longer... Um... I think 20 puffs on a processed industrial tobacco cigarette is a more behavioral risk /concern than a few puffs of marijuana, a naturally grown plant. Of course anything can be abused but for medicinal reasons the plant is relatively harmless.
