Smoking marijuana reduces cancer risk

“Marijuana reduces cancer risk and kills existing tumors”

People smoke a joint during a demonstration organised by the CIRC (research and information center) and entitled 'L'appel du 18 juin' (the call of June 18) to claim for the legalization of the use of marijuana and hashish, on June 18, 2011 at the Parc de la Villette in Paris. The 'Appel du 18 Joint' uses a play on words to make their point, coming on the same day as France celebrates the 'Appel du 18 Juin' or Call of 18 June, when Charles de Gaulle called for resistance against collaborationist Vichy government in 1940.

“This may be hard to believe — as we’re fairly accustomed to the notion that inhaling smoke is always bad for your health — but research shows smoking marijuana actually decreases the risk for developing lung cancer.

According to multiple study findings published on Cancer.gov, “Cannabinoids appear to kill tumor cells but do not affect their nontransformed counterparts and may even protect them from cell death.”

Dr. Donald Tashkin, professor emeritus of medicine at UCLA, also recently revealed to LA Weekly that after 30 years of studying the effects of marijuana smoke on lung function, he did not find any association between lung cancer and smoking weed.

Smoking marijuana doesn’t lead to impaired lung function either

Tashkin also found smoking marijuana does not lead to impaired lung function even after years of habitual use.”
