Marijuana has been shown to improve the health and aid in pain relief with glaucoma and some cancers. I like the health benefits, and there’s research to support it.
I’d gladly prescribe marijuana to patients to help with these ailments (in capsule form), as I believe when used correctly, it can do loads of good in relieving pain and discomfort.
As for it preventing cancer, I tried my three usually non-biased sources of info, and couldn’t find anything with a quick search. I did however find a ton of info on the negative effects of the drug.
(These are both government sites, I avoid .com’s and .org’s due to the lack of university-backed and scientifically researched documentation.)
I don’t smoke it, or take it in in any other way, but I am a proponent for further research in using it for treatment.
I do however, fucking hate potheads. In my entire experience, potheads have been some of the most annoying, smelly, dimwitted fools I’ve had to put up with. Especially the tools that make their pot-smoking a huge part of their personality because apparently it’s the only interesting thing about themselves they can godamn recall. As if they can’t find something else to support and engage about socially, like civil rights or charity to fight disease or illiteracy. (lol illiteracy)
AS FOR PYRO
I personally could see him/her toking it up, but then again, I could see them never touching the stuff. With the character being an unseen, muffled voice within an optical gas mask, I guess it’s anyone’s assumption.
