Smoking Marijuana may give you Lung Cancer, Heart Disease and Diabetes

Posted by PITHOCRATES - February 22nd, 2014

Week in Review

It’s no secret.  You get the munchies after smoking marijuana.  Whether it’s recreational smoking.  Or medical smoking.  Apparently (see Girl Scout sells 117 boxes of cookies outside Green Cross medical marijuana clinic by Heather Saul posted 2/22/2014 on The Independent).

A girl scout has proved it really is “all about location” after selling 117 boxes of cookies from her stand outside The Green Cross medical marijuana dispensary in just two hours.

Thirteen-year-old Danielle Lei set up her cookie stall outside of the clinic in San Francisco and was welcomed by patients and staff.

Danielle sold out of her first batch within 45 minutes, according to the clinic, which is a fully licensed dispensary serving qualified California patients.

The left wants to tax sugary beverages.  They want to take away McDonald’s Happy Meals from our children.  And Michelle Obama wants our kids to eat rabbit food in school because our kids are too fat.  As childhood obesity leads to chronic and costly health problems later in life.  Then there’s the crusade against smoking.  Which they have banned from pretty much everywhere.  As first-hand smoke, second-hand smoke and third-hand smoke will kill you.  For just the whiff of tobacco odor will give you lung cancer.  Yes, the left is very concerned about what we eat, drink and smoke.  Because we apparently don’t know what’s good for us. Or what’s bad.  Thankfully, they do.

Which makes their drive to decriminalize marijuana puzzling to say the least.  They say it’s harmless.  No worse than a cocktail after work each day (though there are some who will say you are an alcoholic if you have a drink every day).  But marijuana causes first-hand smoke, second-hand smoke and third-hand smoke.  Giving marijuana smokers lung cancer.  And if that wasn’t bad enough marijuana also makes people obese.  Because of the munchies.  It’s so bad that people have to buy Girl Scout cookies just after buying their medical marijuana.  Even before they gave themselves a little more lung cancer by smoking it.  And it should be noted that Girl Scout cookies aren’t rabbit food.  No.  They’re the kind of food that tastes good.  And makes our kids obese.

Lung cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc., are bad.  And we need to change people’s eating, drinking and smoking habits so their poor choices don’t become a burden to society.  Unless you get lung cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc., from smoking marijuana.  Because smoking marijuana will give you the less deadly and less costly forms of lung cancer, heart disease, diabetes, etc.  Apparently.

Birth Control and Abortion may lead to Higher Incidences of Birth Defects

Posted by PITHOCRATES - February 10th, 2013

Week in Review

When we interfere with natural physiological functions of the human body bad things happen.  People who smoke a lot of cigarettes can get emphysema, lung cancer and heart disease.  People who drink excessive amounts of alcohol can suffer from liver disease.  Consuming too much sugar can lead to diabetes.  Drinking contaminated water can lead to dysentery and cholera.  If we take too many blows to the head we can suffer brain damage.  And so on.

The human body is an incredibly complex machine.  With many subsystems doing remarkable things.  And any time we interfere with these systems bad things happen.  Our doctors warn us all the time not to interfere with the normal functioning of these systems.  And they do this for all systems save one.  The reproductive system (see Older mothers driving up birth defect rate by Stephen Adams posted 2/6/2013 on The Telegraph).

Increasing numbers of older mothers and use of IVF has led to a marked increase in the number of babies born with birth defects since the 1980s, say researchers.

They looked at 5.4 million births across 14 European countries between 1984 and 2007.

They found that the rate of multiple births had increased by about 50 per over that timescale; while the rate of those births which also had congenital birth defects had doubled…

Professor Helen Dolk, from the Centre for Maternal Fetal and Infant Research, University of Ulster, and the co-author of the study, said: “The increase in multiple birth rates may be explained by changes in maternal age and increased use of assisted reproductive technology (ART).

“It is clear that more research needs to be done to determine the contribution of ART to the risk of congenital anomalies in multiple births.”

The study, based on data from a network of clinicians called the European Surveillance of Congenital Anomalies (EUROCAT), is published in the journal BJOG: An International Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

Women attack their reproductive systems for years.  They take birth control.  Such as hormonal contraceptives.  Which prevent the physiological process the body is trying to do.  They have abortions.  Which interrupts the physiological change their body is going through.  While their bodies try to conceive women fight against this physiological process for years.  Delaying their child-bearing years.  Which is unnatural.  In fact, the female body is trying to conceive a child long before a girl is emotionally mature and even capable of caring for a child.

Before the sexual revolution most women were married and having their children in their twenties.  Allowing their bodies to complete the physiological process they were trying to complete.  So it’s no surprise that altering this physiological process may lead to complications in birth.  As well as a rise in breast cancer that also shows some correlation between birth control and abortion.

Incidences of birth defects and breast cancer have risen since the sexual revolution of the Sixties.  There could be other contributing factors.  But the prevention and delaying of a natural physiological process may be complicit in the rise of birth defects and breast cancer.  Just as smoking cigarettes can cause emphysema, lung cancer and heart disease.  Just as drinking excessive amounts of alcohol can cause liver disease.  Just as consuming too much sugar can cause diabetes.  Just as drinking contaminated water can lead to dysentery and cholera.  And just as too many blows to the head can cause brain damage.  Unnatural attacks on these physiological systems can all lead to bad things happening later in life.  And probably should be avoided.

Women may benefit by having their children earlier rather than later.  And once they have their children the use of birth control and abortion will be moot in regards to birth defects.  For they will not be having children that these physiologically altering processes can affect.
