I think that was thrown in there =)

Besides... You can't prove it causes deaths. THat doesn't mean it doesn't

No I'm not some asshat that is trying to get on people's backs for drugs.

I'm just pointing out facts.

It's deaths from marijuana alone.  Just like people who die from alcohol. There has never been a case of someone dying from marijuana alone.

Someone who smokes cigarettes for 30 years and smokes pot maybe once a week in the same amount of years.

This person dies of lung cancer.

What caused it? The Cigs or the pot?

Fact: It can't be proven that the pot caused it so the cigs are blames.

yeah that's what I meant. I worded it wrong...I meant to say it's not like people who die from alcohol. I know alcohol kills, it's taken several of my family members.

People having alot of problems with quotes in this thread heh. (you guys must be stoned)

Im not tryign to jump into a debate or nothing, but i think it goes to show that if people are dying from marijuana, its such a small percentage of people that its never been enough to prove it.

I don't agree to the idea that pot does NO damage, but its been proven that when compared, there are foods from fast food restuarants that can be worse for you, and lead to far worse medical and health side effects.

People don't die from cigarettes... they die from lung cancer caused by smoking cigarettes.

What Ozzy was illustrating is that if you smoked pot for XX years you could still get lung cander and die, however, most people who smoke pot often also smoke Cig's.  SO what OZzy is saying is that even though they may smoke cigs as well as pot, the pot may increase the speed at which they get lung cancer, and since they smoke cig's it's blamed onthe sig's rather than the pot.  Also, if you smoked pot as much as some people smoke cig's I am pretty confident you'd get lung cancer as well.

However, my grandmother was smoking 2 packs of slim-longs every day for about 15 years, and has been smoking since the 40/50's (? not certain when she started) and she does not have lung cancer and has not been placed under watch for it because her lungs are still i reasonably good (though still old) health.  SO one could say that if she smoked pot as well that she may have lung cancer by now.

ANyway... uhh... I agree with Ozzy; Pot can kill you if you smoke it too much, it has just never been proven in anything more than lab animals.

Not everyone that smokes gets lung cancer. Just like not everyone who lays in the sun  gets skin cancer.
