Oh for heavens sake.
Conducting a fair experiment, and giving Marijuana the fair chance it deserves - in terms of legalization should be done. FAIR experiments. But the
problem is, is it ethical to perform this experiment: 100% Medically checked, healthy people (no prior use of the drug), test group and control group
of equal sizes. Standard papers, standard medicinal marijuana, standard healthy diet, no history of smoking cigarettes or taking any other drugs. A
designated amount of exposure to THC for a length of time. Measurements before and after. Complete Medical check after as well. Then compare
Unfortunately - if Marijuana is linked to testicular cancer (which I don't believe it is), then conducting a study like this might be rather
hard do get approved. However, exposing healthy rats to a certain amount of THC might be a better and more fair approach.
I personally think, that cigarettes are worse for you - yet, those are legal.
