How many smokers get cancer?)
There are alternative methods to consume it...
How many brownie eaters get cancer?
Now many hash eaters get cancer?
How many oil imbibers get cancer?
I'm not making a judgment, merely a quest for information, a good study to read!
Something I would be interested in reading as well. I was shocked several years ago when I watched a debate on medicinal cannabis. (Donahue, Geraldo, Dr. Phil? I don't remember...) Not ONE of those representing the side of cannabis pointed out other methods of getting it into the patient's system. Yet the "establishment" side of the debate kept hammering the point they could never approve anything that involved smoke going into the lungs.

Look how many other natural oils, which could be used as fuel, have a higher oil/acre ratio than Hemp.

List of ALL Medical Studies Proving Cannabis Cures Cancer
So lemme get this straight.
To cure cancer I gots to inhale a bunch of smoke in my lungs ?
Really people ?
Feel free to puff away but don't be surprise years down the road you end up with oral CANCER, and LUNG CANCER.
In a recent study, researchers from Canada, the United States and New Zealand pooled data from six previous studies to determine whether smoking marijuana was associated with lung cancer.
The analysis was the largest of its kind, spanning more than 2,000 lung cancer cases and nearly 3,000 controls. Published June 20 in the International Journal of Cancer, the study found no link between marijuana use and lung cancer risk.
“Results from our pooled analyses provide little evidence for an increased risk of lung cancer among habitual or long-term cannabis smokers,” concluded the team, which included members from the International Lung Cancer Consortium.
Even when data was analyzed based on intensity, duration, consumption and age of initiation, no significant association was found.
The findings, the group adds, are consistent with a 2006 review that also showed no link between marijuana and lung cancer after adjusting for tobacco use.
While tobacco smokers showed the expected drop in lung function over time, the new research found that marijuana smoke had unexpected and apparently positive effects. Low to moderate users actually showed increased lung capacity compared to nonsmokers on two tests, known as FEV1 and FVC. FEV1 is the amount of air someone breathes out in the first second after taking the deepest possible breath; FVC is the total volume of air exhaled after the deepest inhalation.
“FEV1 and FVC both actually increased with moderate and occasional use of marijuana,” says Dr. Mark Pletcher, associate professor of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco and the lead author of the study.
That was a bit of a surprise, says Pletcher, since “There are clearly adverse effects from tobacco use and marijuana smoke has a lot of the same constituents as tobacco smoke does so we thought it might have some of the same harmful effects. It’s a weird effect to see and we couldn’t make it go away,” he adds, explaining that the researchers used statistical models to look for errors or other factors that could explain the apparent benefit and did not find them.

Just been told I have liver cancer and have had a pet scan to see if it has spread, find out this Monday the results.
The doctor has told me I will have to have half my liver removed. My brother wants me to take cannibas oil and I will be trying it and anything else that I think will save me from dieing from cancer.
Even if the cancer has not spread I will still take it in the hope that it will kill anything that's left.
Smoked for 45 years and stopped in June 2015 also smoked weed all that time as soon as I stopped I get cancer, should carried on smoking weed Haha.
