Plain Bloody Stupid anti-weed propoganda
    #1664070 - 06/26/03 11:17 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I just posted this on another site, but it was so daft I thought I'd put it here too...


Someone here recently linked to a US health organisation propoganda page, and it contained this gem:

"Three joints smoked per week for three to six months carries the same probability of developing lung cancer as smoking a pack of cigarettes daily for 20 to 30 years. "

lolololololololololol

Even acounting for the fact they impress on you, that a joint holds 4X the amount of tar as a cig, that's so far off it's ridiculous. 30 YEARS OF A PACK A DAY? Doing the maths...

Taking 30 years of 20 a day, that's 219000 cigs! Plus the leap years... so thats another 140.

Taking 6 months of 3 joints a week, thats about 80 joints.

So 80 joints is equal to 219140 cigs? That would mean one joint does as much cancer-causing harm as 2739.25 cigarrettes. Bejeezus!


How can people expect us to believe such bull?

People believe what they are told to believe.

That?s all there is to it.

Or, to put it in other terms ( assuming lifetime cancer risk is cumulative and not acute for both ) you could smoke one joint a week for 10 years, and be as well off as someone who smoked two and a half packs a day from birth until they died of old age.

They don't expect you to believe it. They expect people who already think Weed Is Bad ( think middle aged, Middle America, never done any illegal drugs, married, go to church every Sunday, work in an office, still have an antenna flag and a Bush/Cheney sticker on their white 2001 Ford Expedition ) to kind of skim over it, without thinking too hard or taking the time to do the math, and file it away until the next time a marijuana legalisation measure comes up on the ballot.
