No lung cancer from smoking weed!

By Sparky | May 28, 2006

Digg just turned me on to a Scientific American feature this month on smoking and cancer, and it looks like there were some surprising results in a study to determine the correlation between marijuana smoke and lung cancer. The surprising result it that it does not appear to cause cancer at all unlike cigarette smoke. Scientists are unsure of why marijuana smoke would not cause lung cancer but other types of smoke would.

Good news for all the health conscious stoners in the world!
