    Thanks to the available findings of a 2006 study showing that cannabis actually reduces the number of cancer cells, medical marijuana users can now feel even better about the widely abolished pain relief ingredient found in the plant.

    The relationship between marijuana and cancer has always been up for debate, but with the use of a specially crafted oil made from the buds of the Cannabis Sativa plant, scientists confirmed that the plant’s primary psychoactive chemical tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) destroys any and all malignant cancer cell growths in several patients.

    Details on the marijuana and cancer prevention connection aren’t exactly known, but further, more extensive testing will reveal exactly what may be causing this seemingly miracle cure. Continued

    Comment: And just another reason Government and Big Business doesn't want it used. Its bad for business, and as the elites say, they don't want the people healthy, they have to die of something, why not cancer

    Uh Huh.

    It cures athlete's foot too.

    And the common cold.

    I see that the study is from 2006. However in 2009....

    Marijuana Damages DNA And May Cause Cancer, New Test Reveals

    ScienceDaily (June 15, 2009) — Using a highly sensitive new test, scientists in Europe are reporting "convincing evidence" that marijuana smoke damages the genetic material DNA in ways that could increase the risk of cancer.

    The researchers add that the ability of cannabis smoke to damage DNA has significant human health implications especially as users tend to inhale more deeply than cigarette smokers, which increases respiratory burden. "The smoking of 3-4 cannabis cigarettes a day is associated with the same degree of damage to bronchial mucus membranes as 20 or more tobacco cigarettes a day," the team adds.

    "In conclusion, these results provide evidence for the DNA damaging potential of cannabis [marijuana] smoke, implying that the consumption of cannabis cigarettes may be detrimental to human health with the possibility to initiate cancer development," the article states. "The data obtained from this study suggesting the DNA damaging potential of cannabis smoke highlight the need for stringent regulation of the consumption of cannabis cigarettes, thus limiting the development of adverse health effects such as cancer."

    Despite the obvious ill effects from marijuana, I support its legalization. More and more, I've been paying attention the unintended benefits of pot smoking. Many will go on to harder drugs and die young, many more will just become ambitiousless and unproductive slugs expanding the employment pool by being unable to compete. Then it becomes a matter of just how cheaply they can be marginally supported.
