Default Re: Marijuana Drastically Shrinks Aggressive Form Of Brain Cancer, New Study Finds

A few thoughts, please:

(1) The use of marijuana for medical purposes should be kept entirely distinct from its widespread use for recreational purposes, for the purpose of any meaningful discussion.

(2) Nonetheless, even for recreational purposes, it may be reasonably argued that marijuana is no more damaging than alcohol--which is legal.

(3) On the other hand, it may also be argued--quite reasonably--that we would not legalize alcohol today if it were currently illegal (as it was almost 100 years ago), given what we now know about it.
