I'll spare everyone here a long missive Friday afternoon but I too can Google up lots of papers and studies that contradict these ones.

You're preaching to the choir; my state has already legalized marijuana for personal use, and I voted FOR it.
Maybe you should wake up and smell the cannabis... Especially as it appears that you have, in your THC-induced buzz, wandered into the wrong section. Talk to the biology folks if you actually want an answer. If you just want to rant, go do it someplace else.

Marijuana doesn't cause mental illness, but it can bring dormant mental illness such as schizophrenia out in a person. And marijuana may not cause cancer, but the smoke you inhale while using it does. which is why you should get a vape.

Yes, any asskiss can dare refute that. After all, they're asskissers.
Now maybe you can explain what the hell this has to do with religion and spirituality section, dude.
