Smoking is, by far,

the most common consumption

method for a lot of cannabis users. Rolling a joint or

packing a bowl is just how medicating was done before

legalization began to take hold across the country and

bring to life a wealth of new products. Still, even with the

advent of edibles, drinks and capsules, many people still

enjoy smoking. And most don’t think it poses a significant

health risk either. They believe that smoking marijuana is

far safer than smoking cigarettes because it doesn’t contain

all of the harsh chemicals used by the tobacco companies.

However, recent studies show this claim is more myth than

fact. Marijuana smoke may be just as harmful.

Researchers at the

Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston

recently determined that marijuana smokers are putting

themselves at just as much risk as those who use tobacco.

 Their study, published in the journal EClinicalMedicine,

shows cannabis smokers have higher concentrations of

dangerous toxins like naphthalene, acrylamide and

acrylonitrile in their system than non-smokers. These

chemicals have been link to anemia, liver and neurological

issues, not to mention cancer.  

The results are alarming considering that cancer patients

often use marijuana to treat their symptoms.

“The increase has renew concerns about the potential

health effects of marijuana smoke, which is know to

contain some of the same toxic combustion products

found in tobacco smoke,”

 lead study author Dr. Dana Gabuzda told CNN.

“This is the first study to compare exposure to acrolein

and other harmful smoke-related chemicals over time

in exclusive marijuana smokers and tobacco smokers,

and to see if those exposures are relate

to cardiovascular disease.” 

At the federal level, the incoming Biden Administration

is expect to expand medical marijuana research.

If there is one aspect of the cannabis legalization scheme

that continues to throw advocates and naysayers for a loop,

it’s the lack of hard evidence showing the potential risks

and benefits of this plant. Congressional Democrats have

already laid the groundwork to make nationwide medical

marijuana research more

accessible and effective.buy marijuana with bitcoins

The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the

Medical Marijuana Research Act (MMRA), which would

allow scientists to study cannabis at the magnitude need

to provide Americans with the truth on cannabis-based

medicine. As it stands, federal law makes it difficult for

research teams to dig into this subject. It also makes it

harder for them to get their hands on quality research

reefer. The bill could soon go before the Senate in the

new session and then President-elect Biden.

But even without enough Congressional votes to pass

medical marijuana reform — no matter what that might

be — Biden himself can make some crucial changes.

The President can order his Health Secretary to launch

an extensive cannabis review for the purpose of getting

it downgrade on the Controlled Substances Act (CSA).

Marijuana is a Schedule I dangerous drug — the same

as heroin — but Biden has discussed changing it to a

Schedule II to open up more research opportunities.

But what does this have to do with smoking?

It doesn’t seem likely, given the times, that a Biden

Administration focused on expanding medical marijuana

research or even legalizing it for medicinal use would

ever recommend smoking as the best method for

consumption. Considering the governmental infrastructure

already in place, any plans to allow medical marijuana

to be regulate by federal health agencies would likely

include the pharmaceutical companies.

Biden isn’t going to unleash the cannabis plant in a way

that gives people the freedom to smoke it under the guise

of medicine. Especially with some of the research that

has come out over the years, including the latest study

from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, suggesting that

marijuana smoke can cause health issues.

We’re not saying that statewide medical marijuana

plans will eliminate smoking anytime soon — that’s a

state’s prerogative. But a federally-regulated medical

cannabis concept is probably going to look more like

every other prescription-based medicine available

on the market.

GW Pharmaceuticals is a prime example. The FDA

potentially downgrading its listing on the CSA, we will

see Big Pharma swooping in to take advantage.

But smoking won’t be part of the plan. Not unless the

federal government moves to legalize it for recreational use.
