Canada and BBC Promote False Study about Cannabis Dangers

“The Canadian government research found 20 times as much ammonia, a chemical linked to cancer, New Scientist said.

The Health Canada team also found five times as much hydrogen cyanide and nitrogen oxides, which are linked to heart and lung damage respectively.” – BBC

Nitrogen & Ammonia residues indicate too much fertilizer in the sample.

So they got an over-fertilized, unflushed sample that only proves that fertilzers are unhealthy and shouldn’t be smoked (or left in the plant before harvest).

And the Hydrogen Cyanide comes from Calcium Cyanide which is a pesticide! It’s not a naturally occuring substance in cannabis as far as I can determine.

This illustrates the need for cannabis to be taxed and regulated so that the quality of cannabis can be of the highest standards for medical use. It also suggests that future studies also need to be of a higher standard than these political propaganda pieces.

Too many people ingest inferior marijuana grown by people who only care about profits and not the health of those smoking it!

So there you go. They use a cherry picked sample that contains an unusual amount of chemicals added (obviously not grown organically) to tout the dangers, and then they claim it’s not as “clean” as tobacco.

Meanwhile they didn’t mention any of the dozens of other toxins present in tobacco that lead to cancer, and instead claim that the toxins in cannabis cause cancer. The fact that it’s obviously fertilizer residue and not cannabis that causes the cancer…

This report is obviously a political maneuver to tighten laws against cannabis in both Canada and Britain. There’s currently political pressure in both countries, esp. Britain as they want to return cannabis to the most restrictive category.
