You can not expect me to believe some random statements made by people who depend on funding from a government like America’s, who have been trying to win their ‘war on drugs’ with any bullshit they could think of.
Isn’t the idea of a conspiracy theory at odds with the medicinal usage you mentioned? There is a lot of BS research used to progress all sorts of agendas, but there were other articles suggesting marijuana wasn’t as damaging as tobacco on that site, which really doesn’t fit the ‘war on drugs’ agenda. I haven’t read about any of them in the media either, so I think they deserve to be judged more objectively. They seem to be based on biochemical evidence rather than the stupid quantitative links used to “prove” the dangers of cholesterol and such, and it was literally the first site I came across.
If you used a vaporiser or used it in food, you’d avoid the tar and carcinogens, and maybe any issues with oxidative stress and inflammation, and probably wouldn’t need to worry about the evidence one way or the other. It’s ultimately up to you, and if you feel you’re progressing while smoking, then I guess it’s not a big deal. Raster seemed to manage it, so it’s certainly possible.
