    so lemme get this right
    maybe its too early and i'm reading this wrong, but it sounds about similar to asking people with cancer if they ever drank coffee and then blaming coffee for the cancer

    What's funny is that some would actually try to use this as an argument against legalizing weed, yet what percentage of people that smoke cigarettes get lung cancer? What percentage of people that drink get cirrhosis?

    The day that happens they should also hand out deprivation permits for crackheads and druggies.

    Druggies get out of line........ well they get shot.

    No need for that, just let companies make drugs and compete, bring prices down, and watch crime reduce itself. Prices for drugs are artificially high because drug dealers, and the government want them that way. If drugs weren't ridiculously expensive people would run their lives into the ground trying to buy them, and turn to crime, no crime, no need for paramilitary police forces, no need for billion dollar anti drug budgets.

    So much win came from a thread about a bullshit article/study. I agree with everything said.

    If you wanna gack up 5 8-balls and kill yourself, have at it. When you break into my house to pay for the habit is when it becomes a problem.

    terrible article. i think they were bored and just wanted to get some hype. the "news" itself was incredibly vague and lacked any substance. basically it just said, "researcher from USC said maybe it can cause cancer, but they have no idea if it does or does not. it just correlates." WTF? If you read the abstract, it even indicates cocaine has a negative impact on testicular cancer. So maybe everyone should do cocaine now.

    Population-based case-control study of recreational drug use and testis cancer risk confirms an association between marijuana use and nonseminoma risk - Lacson - 2012 - Cancer - Wiley Online Library


    lastly, even if weed does make your balls fall off, it would probably have to be a ridiculous amount as some of pointed out. just browse the california prop 65 list.

    http://oehha.ca.gov/prop65/prop65_list/files/p65single072012.pdf

    things that will give you cancer:
    -fiber glass used in information technology and telecommunications.
    -coconut oil used in shampoos and cosmetics.
    -artificial coloring
    -carbon from bbqs
    -ACE inhibitors in heart medicine for hypertension and cardiac failure.
    -salted fish in chinese food.
    -camphor oil used for indian cuisine.
    -filling up your gas tank.

    this list is mostly retarded because 1) it does not give the necessary dosage and exposure time. 2) most likely created, maintained and operated by lobbyists.

    and just to spark some thought, interest, or curiosity. diet coke and orbitz gum gives you cancer. or it did. actually it doesnt. wait it might still though.
