    President Obama’s latest claims about marijuana are contradicted by research and official positions of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, which is part of the White House. And Mr. Obama’s words have anti-drug leaders worried about negative repercussions among youth.

    Mr. Obama claimed to The New Yorker magazine that marijuana is no worse than cigarettes or alcohol and he promoted state efforts by Colorado and Washington to legalize marijuana, which remains illegal under federal law.

    The National Drug Control Policy’s official stance, posted on the whitehouse.gov website, says the opposite of Mr. Obama on all counts.

    For example, as documented in agency reports, marijuana smoke has significantly more carcinogens than tobacco smoke.

    And as reported by the government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse, adolescent use of marijuana does something that alcohol does not; it causes permanent brain damage, including lowering of I.Q.

    Taxpayers have spent billions of dollars warning about drugs, often about marijuana, but these efforts were dramatically undercut by the president’s comments.

    Mr. Obama might as well have rolled that money into a joint and smoked it on national television.

    He told the interviewer, David Remnick, that his earlier years of prodigious puffery were “a bad habit and a vice.” Yet he doesn’t warn others not to follow in his footsteps.

    The Washington Times is the only mainstream paper that is saying marijuana causes brain damage. Of course, the Washington Times is owned by the Moonies too, so go figure, and it's not mainstream at all, but a propaganda tool. BTW, I heard that the Washington Times causes brain damage in people who read it. So I guess we could consider the paper a recruiter for FOX News viewers.

    He should have eaten brownies instead. Pot didn't kill him....smoking did.

    You can in fact get lung cancer other ways than smoke of any kind. It's rare-ish, but it happens.

    Yes, that's what cancers can look like. Your point? You couldn't have seen his lungs before cancer to know what damage was caused by the cancer vs your implication that the damage caused the cancer.

    pot is full of carcinogens and many illegal growers spray things they shouldn't on it while growing it.
