    Pharmaceutical THC isn't the same. You don't have to smoke marijuana either. You can ingest it or vaporize it.

    No, it is not a jab at pro-life people. (All people are pro-life)

    It is a jab at hospitals who refuse to do certain medical procedures because of a book that doesn't lend itself to science and medicine. A tubal ligation has nothing to do with the abortion issue.

I'm arguing that MJ is unnecessary and we have better alternatives.
    Patients say it doesn't work as well. Of course, I'm sure the pharmaceutical company and the sales rep pushing Dronabinol will say differently.

    I've also read that eating vegetables is a better way to get vitamins than running to the vitamin store.

    Can marijuana turn your tongue green
    I wondered about this. It seems I would have seen a green tongue by now. But outside of popsicle and lollipop exploits, I have not.

    How is it that a professional, someone who does this sort of thing for a living can be soooo wrong?

    Which is more logical? Your scenario? Or the scenario from someone who is considered an expert witness about the effects of pot? (and no, that someone is not me...I quoted the person in that post you quoted from)

    Heavy MJ use could also include eating it. Doing so will turn your tongue green.

    It's not about logic imho--it's about observation and evidence. To me, observation rather than deduction is how you determine the truth of that. ymmv

    But, logically, if it's possible that the (normally) daily user is affected then it is also possible that the (normally) daily user is not affected. Otherwise, the sentence would be something different than "it's possible".
    I may be wrong.

    I am not saying that you're wrong, but I don't know of any other herb that does so. Usually herbs, especially fibrous plant matter, tends to cleanse the mouth.
    So, if you could provide some 3rd party evidence, I would appreciate you furthering my education.
    I may be wrong.

    Hard to find something to this effect. Pretty much everything that comes up about pot in google is about smoking it. Which, yeah, doesn't turn tongues green. But here is another article that has a suspect with a green tougne because he ate it. (he admitted to eating it to hide evidence)

    Green Tongue Points to Pot

    The man was chewing on something that he insisted was gum, but the officer kept smelling fresh marijuana coming from him, reports said. The officer asked him to open his mouth. His tongue was light green with small green specks on it.

    The man admitted it was a small amount of marijuana, according to the police report. There was also a scale in the car, which the man said did not belong to him.
