One of the major objections to the medicinal use of marijuana is the use of smoking as a delivery system. Based on the fact that smoking tobacco causes deterioration of lung function, these detractors intone that smoking marijuana is just as harmful. So let’s examine the truth about the effects of marijuana smoking on the lungs.
Testing that hypothesis is really quite simple—even you can do it. Head over to any hospital and go to the respiratory wing. Locate a nurse and ask how many patients are in the respiratory wing due to their use of tobacco. You will learn that most of the patients in that wing are there for that reason.
Now ask how many patients are there because they only smoked marijuana. Don’t be surprised when the nurse tells you that there is not one patient in a respiratory bed fitting that description. They might even elaborate a bit and say that you are not likely to find a single patient in a hospital bed anywhere just because they use marijuana, but that’s another article. This article is all about the effects of marijuana on the lungs.
Those who disparage smoking marijuana—and especially those who ridicule marijuana consumed in any form—would never take the time to do the simple study described above. Of course they would dismiss your hospital study as meaningless, biased and unscientific.
Marijuana Recipes: Baked Ham and Egg Cups
I just love this self-contained breakfast recipe! Ham slices form the cup the eggs are baked in. A muffin pan makes easy work of this simple recipe that always gets raves!
The cannabis in this recipe is added via a medicated pesto that you can also use in a variety of other ways. As the recipe makes about a half cup of pesto, you will have leftovers. It keeps well in the freezer. Try using the leftover pesto over pasta or on steamed veggies, or fish. You can even use it as a savory bread spread when making Italian style sandwiches. You could also make more of this recipe of course.
