I've read the feed about marijuana not curing cataracts, but I would have figured that one, I'm wondering if it will slow down the growth?
Not known to:
Medical marijuana can have many benefits and can help glaucoma, but I've never seen anyone claim it helps cataracts.
The reason I am answering this is to inform you about n-acetylcarnosine, a safe and natural therapy that can slow down the growth of cataracts and even reverse early cataracts. See http://www. Life-enhancement. Com/magazine/article/855-n-acetylcarnosine-may-help-with-cataracts. ...Read more

You didn't finish: But sounds like the answer is no. Second-hand marijuana smoke will virtually never cause a positive urine test (unless it is in a closed car with 5 people smoking and you inhaling deeply). In addition, unless they are doing hair follicle testing, nothing from that many months ago would be detectable in a urine or saliva test, and might not even be in most hair samples, depending on length. ...Read more

Not fatally: I have never seen a report of an overdose of marijuana causing death directly-- although many fatal car accidents are caused by marijuana. 'overdose'-- taking in a higher amount than planned-- can have other effects, like paranoia, sleepiness, impaired judgment. But the effects go away when the thc wears off-- as long as nothing permanent happens from being impaired i.e. Fights or accidents. ...Read more

Marijuana and health:
I would take the morality out of the question or the 'good' versus 'bad' with marijuana use.
Like any substance the over use of this product can lead to intoxication, addiction, and other health or mental health concerns.

Marijuana: I don't think marijuana is healthy because smoking anything damages the lungs. It also causes a lack of will and can serve as a gateway to the use of other drugs.

-possibly, it could!: If it's not been adulterated with some other substance- harm could stem from it's actions as an hallucinogen. If he did not grow it himself- and does not have the skill or lab to test it's quality or components, all bets are off!

Perhaps people who tend to become mj users are less obese to start with, or maybe mj users use mj instead of food to soothe their stress. ...Read more

Marijuana, when abused, is right up there with the other dangers. ...Read more
