It minimizes the user's risk of stroke but increases uptight family members' risk of having heart attacks. Whether good or bad depends on which side you'd rather keep around.

Makes sense, there are a lot of health benefits to pot. That said, there are also negative effects. The negative effects on brain development if used before 18 are staggering (Source 1). Used by adults in moderation it's no worse than alcohol though.

THC is a vassal dilator.

That is why it makes people's eyes bloodshot.

That is how it helps to treat glaucoma.

It only follows that it would minimize risk of stroke by enlarging veins in the brain, making it harder to block blood flow.

Long-term marijuana abuse can lead to physical and psychological marijuana addiction. Heavy, long-term marijuana users develop physical dependence on the drug and withdrawal symptoms upon quitting. Marijuana withdrawal symptoms typically include irritability, sleeplessness, anxiety, impaired appetite and aggression.

Effects of weed.

Long-term marijuana abuse often results in lowered motivation and an impaired ability to function in daily life. Some users experience anxiety, panic attacks, respiratory illnesses and increased heart rate and risk of heart attack. Though research is not definitive, chronic marijuana abuse has been linked to mental illness such as anxiety, depression and schizophrenia.

Marijuana use also poses a major threat to lung health. Marijuana smokers, especially those who began as teenagers, can have the same respiratory problems as tobacco smokers. In fact, marijuana puts smokers at comparatively higher risk for lung health complications due to the fact that it has four times the tar, three to five times more carbon monoxide and over 50% more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than cigarettes. Just three or four joints cause as much lung damage as 20 cigarettes.

The dangers of marijuana use.

Over the years, marijuana has become much more potent. The amount of THC in pot has increased more than 150% since 1983. Sometimes unbeknownst to the user, marijuana can be laced with heroin, cocaine, insecticides and embalming fluid. About 400 harmful chemicals, many of which are carcinogenic, are commonly found in marijuana as well. Lastly, high doses of marijuana can produce an acute psychotic reaction in some individuals.

I don't care about weed laws one way or the other. I do enjoy taking whatever side you are against just to rattle your chain. So how was it?
