    cough cough. Horrible study lol. Similar claims have been made before but have never been proven. Their research is probably full of holes lol. I would like to hear their exact methods before I believe anything. Marijuana has been known to actually decrease the chance of cancer. We all remember that study that was done with monkeys that 'proved' marijuana causes brain damage. (by pumping marijuana smoke into gas masks but without additional oxygen) :)

    I think the best test of smoking pot to cause anything. Is to not smoke pot yourself. And be friends with someone who smokes it 10+ years. Then you will see :)

    Hmm Seattle is an outdoorsy area.. hippies... hippies ride bikes in the mountains, on the streets, whatever. Riding bikes has been proven to decrease sperm count and didnt Lance Armstrong get ball cancer? Link between weed and ball cancer refuted.

    ok, this study is crap... ppl who smoke marijuana tend to live a less healthy life and usually couldn't care less about their health..they obviously tend to be less spiritual, do less exercise,drink more, smoke more and eat more crappy food

    so, there could be 1000 other reasons for their cancer problems, other than just blaming marijuana..

    for this study to be effective, they will need a sample of adults who eat the same thing, work the same jobs, have the same dna, and pretty much do all the exact same thing, other than one half of the sample need to smoke weed, and the other half needs to stay away from weed.

    Hmm thats a stereotype if i ever saw one. I workout, dont drink any alcohol, and smoke a ton of pot. Smoking pot is the essence of spirituality and I've never heard of lack of spirituality causing cancer (its probably not what the church tells people)

    What difference it makes? We all must die because of something, yet they will laugh at you in hell or if you're lucky in heaven because your balls put you in troubles :)

    Now in a more serious note, smoking marijuana is fine as time as you have no better things to do, like working or wishing more from your life, it's just make you the laziest person and you're going to let things that can be done today for tomorrow and so on every freakin day.Not to mention your memory wont be anymore that good how it used to be once.

    Everyone seems to ignore the fact that there hasn't been any real research. IT'S JUST A HYPOTHESIS.

    I wouldn't worry about this, seems to just be propaganda.

    One day we hear pot cures cancer, the next day it makes your balls fall off. Jesus how long's it gonna take to get their stories straight?

    Not to mention the only marijuana studies getting funded anymore are propaganda against its medicinal properties. Why not just legalize and tax it? Cut out the drug cartels and free 40% of our non-violent criminal offenders from the penitentiaries that OUR tax dollars pay for. That wouldn't be unreasonable now would it?

    It's not an actual study just a hypothesis.

    That's the reasonably smart thing to do and god forbid that politicians do that.
