I guess this is why people like Keith Richards live so long...

This is an odd case of the almost simultaneous repeat.

Uh Oh.

wow you're right - he's an incredible 68 yrs old - better contact Guinness.

Well the good news here is that while in chemo you can get a medical card to smoke more weed to counteract the side affects.

Well, anyone who says that smoking weed is 100%, completely safe is an idiot. That said, there's no compelling reason to keep it illegal. Lots of the stuff we do is dangerous to the individual but it's their right to kill themselves however they want.

Women will spontaneously grow testicles, and then get cancer in them.

I bet Keith contacts Guinness nightly, probably a case worth.

And you are looking at human years not rock star years, which is around 1/2 of dog years.

I guess this means we need to legalize medicinal cocaine.

2012-09-10 10:39:25 AM
Well, I've already got this so does that mean I can smoke tons of pot with impunity?

what? Marijuana? The wonder drug? I had been told that not only did it have no ill effects, but it was the cure for everything.
 
2012-09-10 10:40:52 AM
I first read about this "risk" in the 1970s. The study was later disproved. Smoke on boys. This research is bogus. The BoogieDope's gonna getcha.

You are weakminded and you've been brainwashed to distrust and fear marijuana. So much so you readily believe this story about testicular cancer. Good boy, fireclown, obey obey.

I came to make this point...that Keith Richards is still alive at 68 is a medical miracle itself.

Oh, and I strongly suspect that smoking ANYTHING dramatically raises your risk of testicular cancer.
 
2012-09-10 10:53:25 AM
I don't think you're supposed to smoke it with your genitals.

/if you smoke after sex, you should slow down a little.

Pot makes you mellow out. Cocaine jacks you up. What happens if you do both at the same time?

It is estimated that 8,590 new cases of testicular cancer will be diagnosed in men, and 360 men will die of this disease in the United States in 2012.[1] Testicular cancer is the most common malignancy in men aged 15 to 34 years.[2,3] It accounts for approximately 1% of all cancers in men. Worldwide, testicular cancer has more than doubled in the last 40 years. Incidence varies considerably in different geographical areas, being highest in Scandinavia and Switzerland; intermediate in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom; and lowest in Asia and Africa. It also varies according to ethnic groups, with a much higher rate among whites than blacks in the American population.[4] An annual increase of 3% is reported for Caucasian populations.[5] Despite the increase in observed incidence, there has been a dramatic decrease in mortality as a result of effective treatments.

Why not a logitudinal study? You know: Nice chart of increase in DX from 1940's (lots of military records) through 2000, for instance?
Not as BS as `Reyes Syndrome' and Aspirin (still extant and selling more of the liver toxin acetaminophen), Seems like a legit study in a very small population (just the kind the `don't let your little boy's balls rot off! NO SPANKING NO SPLIFFS!!!' love to add fatuous filigree to).

/Scandinavia and Switzerland, huh?
//what entity supplied the research grant?

It doesn't matter, the authorities are addicted to the profit of marijuana prohibition.
It's not getting legalized, they have helicopters to pay for.

Came for south park reference, leaving satisfied.

My secretary just told me her daughters friend had a mole on his ARM and was dead within 6 weeks. WTF..

Such BS!! I've been smoking da weedies for over 30 years now and have only had testicular cancer twice!

/true story bro 

//Of course I've also spent a majority of my life in a wheelchair with a very messed up back so I'm about as far from "average" as they come

"So the cancer spread and killed him?"

"Nope, was run over by an 18 wheeler."

Well... Here's an article in the National Cancer Institute that suggests that cannabinoids have anti-tumoral properties.

Then you have to divide by zero. And you know what happens when you divide by zero...

As someone who has done both, I used to "dust" my bowl of weedies with coke, I can tell you its quite the buzz. Luckily I decided to "Do no line in '89'" and haven't touched the evil cocaine since then!

Will quit smoking weedies when they put my body in a box and torch it!
