stoners, rejoice

Interesting results from a study comparing tobacco smokers to marijuana smokers. People who smoke tobacco heavily (2+ packs per day) get cancer 20 times more often than non-tobacco smokers. But in people who smoke marijuana heavily, there was NO increase in cancer rates compared to the general public!

The results surprised the researchers, who expected to find elevated cancer rates among heavy pot smokers. They must not be Bush supporters, because they didn't fix their results to match their hypothesis or their politics.
