Still no need to panic. Weed won’t give you a heart attack

Metro reports a study apparently linking smoking weed to heart attacks and death.

Utterly meaningless.

Such data means zero in the absence of baseline data about the rate of death and heart attacks in those that don’t smoke weed. The handful of people who were “affected” is a trivial number. I doubt that it is different from nonweed smokers.

Who publishes this shit?

Why don’t they just come out and admit that they are making a moral judgement on largely, youth, behaviour. I would think that the death rate is well below the same age group dying from binge drinking. But, of course, drinking is socially acceptable…..
