It is illegal...: Mj is not like the cigarrettes you can by in stores. It does not have the same lung cancer-causing concern. Mj may actually have some medical benefit such as pain-relief. The biggest concern for mj is that it still is an illegal product by feferal standard (some states legalizedit for few medical reasons). So, unless prescribed by your doc, i recommend stay safely away from it. Good luck.
