    I'm not saying this study is (or isn't) legitimate, but my concern is that the assiduous users of marijuana that I know are so dogmatic about its benefits, I sometimes worry that if legitimate research came out, they would never accept it.

    No matter who comes out with a study about marijuana, if it even implies anything remotely negative, it is immediately attributed to big pharm wanting to keep you from the greatest thing ever. I think it's kind of silly.

    I don't give a shit if this was a study on boners being good for the butt, it's simply complete junk science. You don't need a pro- or anti-pot stance to see this is simply shitty science.

    It's takes a real hive-mind to ignore reality in order to reach a preferred conclusion. The reality is this study is flawed in some of the most basic ways.

    They didn't even measure how much was being used. They could've had 5 people taking 1 hit a day vs 5 people smoking an ounce a day. If that simple variable was ignored, what else was unaccounted for?

    It's simply a shit study, regardless of your stance.

    Junk science.

    A study of 1,200 people that didn't assess diet nor frequency of marijuana use somehow linked marijuana use to high blood pressure?

    Stop.

    Smoking is known to cause high blood pressure. I bet smoking weed is harmful even if cannabis itself isn't. Even vaping causes inflammation and cell damage/death.

    No one believes alcohol or junk food are good for you, but try telling a pot head their drug habit may not be the greatest thing since sliced bread and they act as if you disrespected a family member. Your relationship with a plant is disturbing.

    The people who did this study should be downright ashamed for how they went about doing it. Like user @BEER said they didn't assess frequency of use, diet and other facts. That is my problem with a lot of Marijuana studies is that the sample size is so relatively small its meaningless not to mention its illegal on a federal level so its much harder to get funded to be able to do long term studies. That is why when I see studies on this and other substances I usually will read the actual study itself to see how they went about doing said study.

    I'm not sure if you are saying " your" as in generally referring to pot smokers or literally speaking about me. Bit I've never smoked pot or any drug, and I've never tried a cigarette. I also drink less than 5 beers a year.

    Without pesticides, the foods that we eat would be far more infected with insect pathogens.

    Pathogens are now a known link to cancer.

    https://www.cancer.org/cancer/cance...ections-that-can-lead-to-cancer/bacteria.html

    One could easily make the argument that the United States use of pesticide, has contributed to lower instances of stomach cancer in the United States.
