Kush Chronic-les: Study Finds Smokin’ That ‘Mary Jane’ Does NOT Hurt Your Lungs

Kush Chronic-les: Study Finds Smokin' That 'Mary Jane' Does NOT Hurt Your Lungs

Looks like another point for the “Legalize It” movement…

Smoking a joint once a week or a bit more apparently doesn’t harm the lungs, suggests a 20-year study that bolsters evidence that marijuana doesn’t do the kind of damage tobacco does.

The study by researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham was released Tuesday by the Journal of the American Medical Association. Unlike cigarette smokers, marijuana users tend to breathe in deeply when they inhale a joint, which some researchers think might strengthen lung tissue. But the common lung function tests used in the study require the same kind of deep breathing that marijuana smokers are used to, so their good test results might partly reflect lots of practice, said Kertesz, a drug abuse researcher and preventive medicine specialist at the Alabama university.

On average, cigarette users smoked about 9 cigarettes daily, while average marijuana use was only a joint or two a few times a month – typical for U.S. marijuana users, Kertesz said.

The analyses showed pot didn’t appear to harm lung function, but cigarettes did. Cigarette smokers’ test scores worsened steadily during the study. Smoking marijuana as often as one joint daily for seven years, or one joint weekly for 20 years was not linked with worse scores. Very few study participants smoked more often than that.

Cigarettes are bad and marijuana…. not so much? Why does this seem like common sense to us? What do you think? Is this a step towards legalizing the herb or just comparing 2 of the same evils?

In Sad Chubby Lumpkins News: Twinkies Maker Filing for Bankruptcy

In Sad Chubby Lumpkins News: Twinkies Maker Filing for Bankruptcy

Just when the Girl Scouts decided to unveil a new cookie; Twinkies maker, Hostess Brands Inc. is preparing to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as soon as this week, a move that would mark the second significant court restructuring for the Twinkies and Wonder Bread baker in the past several years.

The Wall Street Journal cites people familiar with the matter, saying the makers of Twinkies, Wonder Bread and those iconic chocolate Hostess cupcakes with the squiggle of white icing, are carrying more than $860 million in debt.

Rising prices for sugar, flour and other ingredients the company needs to bake up its various smushy offerings are partly to blame, as well as the high labor costs that come with employing around 19,000 people. Even $2.5 billion in sales hasn’t been enough to meet those rising costs.

They’re also in debt to the tune of about $50 million to vendors, which are now asking for Hostess to pay up because of the financial straits, one source told the WSJ. Since the company has filed for Chapter 11 before, in a restructuring move in 2004, those in the know are calling this newest filing a Chapter 22 proceeding.

Might as well stockpile those Twinkies just in case. They’ll last forever anyway, right?
