STUDY: Marijuana Does Not Cause Lung Cancer

Straight info from a massive study that just keeps on giving.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released a report in January that looked at literally more than 10,700 weed studies from the past. The massive document (errr book?) is about 400 pages. Those 400 pages hold a lot of information, but it's clear that weed needs more studies because a lot of these conclusive studies are inconclusive.

Still, many news and lifestyle outlets are (still) dissecting the data from that massive report, and some recent uncovered threads include something big: Marijuana doesn't cause lung cancer. Or any other kind of shitty cancers associated with smoking. 

From The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine:

Regarding the link between marijuana and cancer, the committee found evidence that suggests smoking cannabis does not increase the risk for cancers often associated with tobacco useā€”such as lung and head and neck cancers.  The committee also found limited evidence that cannabis use is associated with one sub-type of testicular cancer and insufficient evidence that cannabis use by a mother or father during pregnancy leads to a greater risk of cancers in the child.

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has given the weed world the study that just keeps on giving.
