Social Engineering via Propaganda 101.

The industrialization of a popular agricultural based hemp product could inject literally BILLIONS into our economy.

THAT IS CONTRARY TO THE PLAN. Too many industrial baron's would lose money in actual fair competition. They have built an industry on 'prohibition' - and they like the revenue flow - thank you very much.

I am responding anonymously because few people know that I have had testicular cancer. It is still a very sensitive issue for me, even 15 years after the fact.
Prior to my diagnosis, I had never even touched marijuana.
I was in the military and worked around RF radiation. That is where it is thought my cancer came from.

So let me get this straight....

So instead of sampling 1000 heavy male users of marijuana and determining what percentage of them contracted testicular cancer... she takes a bunch of people with testicular cancer and survey's them about their marijuana use....

How the heck? This doesn't prove anything except that a lot of people smoke pot.

Go survey 1000 heavy users of marijuana and then see how many of them have contracted testicular cancer... Then compare the two studies...

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 findings.

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.
