    Wow. Chemotherapy doesn`t kill cancer patients. Cancer does. Chemotherapy just fails to save some of them. Cannabis makes it so that people who throw up when they try to eat, because of chemotherapy, can keep food down.

    My friend died of Hodgkin`s Lymphoma when he was in his 30`s. He had it for 11 years. When he was getting chemo, he couldn`t eat without throwing up unless he smoked a bowl first. Marijuana kept him alive longer, but it doesn`t cure cancer, because he was a total stoner and he`s dead now.

    Lando is right, it`s ailment for some of the symptoms of cancer treatment. People who can eat healthy while receiving chemotherapy will have better chance of fighting the illness. There is some anecdotal evidence of THCs ability to trigger cell self destruction mechanism (on old and damaged cells, THC does nothing to healthy new cells), something that cancerous cells lack (one the main reasons why it`s so deadly disease.) but like i said, it`s not been proven. Yet.. There can be even more benefitial effects on consuming the plant but none of those involve smoking THC (in that use, THC is useless, it`s the other cannabinoids..).. Eating raw plant material might be the biggest thing that plant has to offer, 20 years from now will have hemp salad for lunch. I`ll be still smoking it too.

    Smoking weed doesn`t cure cancer. Cannabis has two main chemicals: THC which makes you high, and CBD which holds the medical secrets of the plant. Highly concentrated CBD oil has shown some serious promise in cancer treatment without any side effects and no high feeling.

    We`re not calling it a cure yet. But it`s looking interesting right now.

    Chemo does, in fact kill SOME people. The chemicals used are, after all, poisons.
    The only thing cannabis `cured` is lack of munchies. It does help with nausea and pain though.

    Cannabis is responsible for the destruction of cake. No home that contains cannabis can also have cake in it.

    I do think the benefits are being exaggerated, on the other so are the dangers and especially so. The War on Drugs is a clear cut example of how government regulations destroy rather than protect. The DEA is the paramilitary enforcement arm of the FDA, the latter in particular censors information about certain drugs because they`re "untested" claims. Even my state of Texas is warming up to the idea of outright legalization, just a matter of time before the Federal Government stands alone on the issue.

    Okay, I`m all for pot being available for sale right next to the White Owls and the Swisher Sweets ... but let`s not argue the case with complete bullpoo ... that doesn`t help the cause.

    Too many of the pro-pot crowd hurt their own cause with claims like this. So how about this for a reason to legalize it...

    You are an adult, and you want to smoke pot to get high.

    Cause all said that`s a pretty fair reason.

    I believe the simple fact that Marijuana being safer than water is enough for you people against it to feel like retards. Marijuana has no overdose deaths in its thousands of years of being used, while water intoxication has killed many people. Also, this,

    isn`t pot practically legal now anyway? in the uk you need to seriously antagonise a cop to get arrested for it. Lets wait and see if there is a spike in the cases of schizophrenia as predicted by a suggested link. If not then... well, very little will stand in the way of legalisation.

    If that were true than Canada would be devoid of rational thought.

    The truth hurts when you can`t accept it.

    I`m ok with people using pot so long as they don`t go driving around on it, but if you`re going to smoke pot don`t bitch about people smoking cigarettes.

    As billions of $$ of research have yet to be proven. It may or may not cure cancer. But it sure as hell helps deal with the pain and chemo most people go thru. But is not on a list of available drugs. 10 out of 10 canabis users will die happy. 10 out of 10 chemo patiants will die in pain.

    For medical purposes there does seem to be much promise. But please, I`ve been to Colorado; we all know the abuse is rampant. And the creator of this graphic is way off if they think this would get me to change my vote on legalization.
