The three most asked questions are on the web, one being, Is Smoking Marijuana Bad for You? And the second, Is Smoking Cigarettes bad for you? And the third, Is smoking Electronic Cigarettes, Vaping bad for you? I think the keyword is “Smoking.” anything.
The Health Professionals’ sole belief is that the smoke from the cigarette and vaping are associated with 500 different chemicals that go into your lungs, clogs up all the blood vessels (small air sacs) with nicotine. Starving much-needed oxygen to the brain and body. This in turn, causes lung diseases such as respiratory and breathing problems. Sickness and generally poor quality of life. Well . . . you get the idea. And that makes total sense.
The question, Is Smoking Marijuana or Vaping Bad For You?
Yes to the question, Is Cannabis legal in Canada, or at least by the time of my posting it will be legal (Oct. 17). Some of the general public can hardly wait. Legalizing the pot industry will bring most of these smokers out of the closet, not like they need to be, they been doing it forever anyway. The people can just do it legally now.
The marijuana industry is gearing up,the stores are ready to open, the 115 or so pot producers in Canada are spending money like they already have it. They, like our government, are expecting a major economic win fall.
Morbid topic, but this is true no less.
An upstanding person as I am, do not partake in such activities. . . but, “Is it even safe to smoke?” You know they banned cigarettes because scientifically it’s proven that it’s bad for your health, breathing in all those chemicals. Their reasoning is sound, all the chemicals and the oils/nicotine from smoking cigarettes just clogged up the blood vessels in your lungs. If that happens then the oxygen supply to the brain or body has been reduced and will and can just create a lot of health problems.
SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
How many times have you heard that quotation? “Smoking is bad for you” Now, this is coming from a person that knows virtually nothing about the body anatomy. But as an ordinary person, outside the box looking in, I still have to wonder if any research was done on the long term effects on smoking cannabis, pot. So you still have to see it at face value.
Is Cannabis OK to smoke?
Cannabis in most parts gets smoked, inhaled, and still goes into your bloodstream through your lungs. As a matter of fact, the same way as smoking cigarettes. It’s bad enough that you have to breathe polluted air, but the oils from cannabis should surely work the same way over time as nicotine.
Just saying. Could I be right?
Now, the new law has been passed in legalizing pot in Canada, and I’m totally amazed that articles on the health and welfare of smoking pot are few and far between.
But going back to my lung theory and the nicotine plugged blood vessels in your lungs, and now Cannabis plugging the arteries/blood vessels with Cannabis oil.
I don’t see a difference.
Canada is Open For Business
Doctors/physicians are staying relatively quiet on the issue of marijuana. The cancer society is not addressing any concerns of smoking pot, so I wonder, why do I see a difference? I’m far from being a medical practitioner or an expert in the field. It just makes sense.
On a lighter note:
Our government made it law and by making it law, they put a lot of our citizens on a cloud without even lighting a match to a joint. Some people are ecstatically happy in most part with the new law. “Well, maybe not all”.
The younger groups call them, “doobies” so,
I better get with the lingo, I’m assuming pot will be around long after I’m gone, so I better get used to the talk, Eh!
Canada IS Legalizing “Pot” Recreational Marijuana by midsummer and we will be open for business, at least in the Cannabis department.
More tax revenue.pack

By Legalizing Pot “marijuana” in Canada there are a lot of good as well as some bad points. Do away with the underground economy, more tax revenue, keep it out of the hands of children.
Look at all the money Canada will be saving by not charging and jailing all these bad guys, you know the ones, selling this stuff illegally. Overnight these bandits will become honorable Canadian citizens again and now will have to go out and, find real jobs… Eh
I have to admit though, going to a local dispensary will be easier than importing the Jamaican Gold, from you know where.
But again you have to wonder, how is our government going to regulate this weed smoking? It’s illegal to smoke cigarettes anywhere around or near a public building, can’t smoke around children, and they’re even trying to pass a law by banning cigarettes in your home and car. They actually have special officers that heavily fine the offenders.
Up to a couple of years ago, the only place you could buy a six-pack of beer was in a special beer store and since then, they have loosened up that ruling. Now you can buy it in selected food chains.
But “STILL NOT IN A CORNER STORE”.
Pot, even though it is NOT legal in the Netherlands, it is widely available and probably considered a nuisance more than anything. As luck would have it, we went to Holland for our holidays and this is off the subject, BUT NOT.
∞ So, while we were in Holland the curiosity got the best of me, and I had to visit the famous RED LIGHT DISTRICT. As I looked over at these display windows I noticed this “lady” had spotted me. She did the consecutive finger gesture to come in for a “visit”. I pointed out that I had my wife with me and she gave this wave with her hand, who cares gesture. Only in Holland. Eh!
BACK TO THE STORY
Having been in Amsterdam all those days, there was no distinct Marijuana smell. We were there for the Queen’s birthday and party-goers were everywhere. There was no heavy smoke/smell.
Maybe they weren’t smoking that day, Marijuana smoke-free day, or maybe they found a way to remove that distinct order.
Well, as I understand it, major growers in Canada will have up to 50 different flavors of this weed for your liking. So our Canadian growers must have found a way to get rid of the smell.
But, I still have to wonder if some Canadian pot will include menthol or a cherry flavor.
Canada is open for Business
A few years back the tobacco companies polluted my Cigars with those oddball flavors, and that took the fun right out of smoking stoggies (cigars). Eh!
