But if the statement is true like mine was it doesn't fit your analogy.

See how easy it is to make false blanket statements when one approaches discussion from a politically partisan viewpoint.

If being the key word that applies to your entire statement, not just the parts that you want it to in your mind.

Do you have any debate to make on the content or are you conducting a grammar test?

Mikeyy,

One of the times I agree with you. I have seen the effects of tumor shrinkage in a family dog here with Cancer. The Vet that tends him is impressed. He had told me years ago that the dog wouldn't survive long term.

The tumors are still there but small. They seem not to bother him at all either.

Regards, Kirk

Vets in favor of medicinal marijuana...

Vets Overwhelmingly Back Legalizing Medicinal Marijuana: Legion Survey
2 Nov 2017 | More than 80 percent of veterans nationwide favor legalizing the medicinal use of marijuana and would want to have it as a potential treatment option, according to a survey released Thursday by the American Legion.
Quote:
Eighty-three percent of veteran households surveyed said the federal government should legalize medical cannabis, and 82 percent indicated that they would want to have medical cannabis as a legal treatment option. In addition, 92 percent of veteran households support research into the efficacy of medical cannabis for mental and physical conditions and as a possible substitute for prescription opioids, the survey said. The telephone survey was conducted for the two-million member Legion by Five Corners Strategies from Oct. 8 to Oct. 10 and had a plus or minus margin of error of 3.43 percent.

A memo from Five Corners Strategies on the survey said, "Support for medical cannabis and research on medical cannabis is high across veterans and caregivers, all age ranges, gender, political leanings and geography." The survey showed that 88 percent of self-identified conservative respondents, 90 percent of self-identified liberals and 70 percent of self-identified independents supported federally legalized medical cannabis. The survey was released at a Capitol Hill news conference attended by Reps. Tim Walz, D-Minnesota, ranking member of the House Veterans Affairs Committee; Mark Takano, D-California; Julia Brownley, D-California; and Matt Gaetz, R-Florida.


At its national convention in Reno, Nevada, in August, the American Legion adopted a resolution urging the federal government to allow doctors at the Department of Veterans Affairs to discuss and recommend medical marijuana in the 26 states where cannabis is legal. The Legion previously had urged the removal of marijuana from the government's list of "Schedule 1" drugs. The list includes heroin, LSD and Ecstasy, which are deemed to have no medical use. In May, VA Secretary David Shulkin said he was open to new evidence showing marijuana could be used to treat veterans, but VA policy currently bars its doctors from sharing their opinions on marijuana with veterans or recommending it for medical use.

At the news conference Thursday, Legion Executive Director Verna Jones stressed that the Legion is "not advocating for recreational use of marijuana, but we are advocating for the removal of cannabis from Schedule One of the Controlled Substances Act so that more medical investigators can do research." Lou Celli, the Legion's national director of Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, said that as a former law enforcement officer and Army master sergeant, he was initially skeptical when veterans told him of the beneficial effects of medicinal marijuana. He said he has come to believe that "cannabis is improperly categorized as a 'most dangerous and most addictive' drug -- right up there with Ecstasy and heroin. Ironically, all of the opioids that kill more than 90 Americans every day are Schedule II and III drugs."

You offset it by accidentally breathing in the hydrocarbon emissions from internal combustion engines.
Guess that settles that.

Go suck an exhaust pipes for an hour while I smoke a joint. That will settle it for a fact.
