Myth From Fact: Hookah, Weed, & Cigs?

weed can cause psychosis

weed really isn't that good for you, it can cause damage to the brain over time. I know a lot of people who smoke weed regularly and there's not much going on upstairs if you know what I mean.

there are people who smoke weed but are intelligent, but they don't smoke it excessively and are not addicted to it. I'm not looking down on people who do it but it's not good for you, if you are going to smoke weed be careful and responsible and don't put your health at risk just to look cool. http://www.cancer.org/cancer/news/expert... http://lifestyle.iloveindia.com/lounge/e...

Myth From Fact: Hookah, Weed, & Cigs?

Hookah is better than cigs because it contains less nicotine and carcinogens. Weed is the better option because of several reasons. It has never killed any by overdose. You would have to consume roughly 1,500 lbs. in 15 minutes to overdose. According to Harvard Studies, THC activates naturally produced receptors to fight lung cancer. They tested it and the lung tumors reduced by 50% in 3 weeks. According to the California Pacific Medical Center, they have found a THC compound which can potentially stop metastasis aggressive cancer. And according to Harvard Study, they also have found that THC actually activates naturally produced receptors to fight off lung cancer.
According to a Time article and New York Times, low and moderate use can? actually improve (a minuscule amount but better is still better) lung function. Heavy users stay about the same or barely less. Shakespeare, George Washington, Michael Phelps, Barack Obama, Steven King, Kareem Ab-Dul Jabbar, Bill Murray, Morgan Freeman? and even Bill Gates have all been said to have smoked and smoke weed. So there are only good things to come out of smoking weed except you might get hungry. Word on the street (not really around the street lol) is around 100 Hookah puffs = half a cig but that varies on the size of you're hit. (Also, nice tidbit, if Weed was legalized, it would almost eliminate the Mexican Cartel violence that is associated with it as well as with anywhere from 5-15 years, could eliminate the national debt because weed, even being illegal, produces millions/billions. According to CNBC, (and some other sources but this one was the first link) weed could produce up anywhere from $35-$45 billion. And that is if the majority only consumes a low amount which most people don't.) Hope you are informed and be sure to do your own research as well!
