ALED Jones takes great delight in revealing that cannabis is
carcinogenic when smoked.

I don't think anybody would argue that inhaling any smoke in to your
lungs was healthy - you don't have to smoke cannabis, it can be eaten.
This is sound advice to anyone wishing to reduce any potential harmful
effects of smoke.

Cannabis research is being carried out on a number of significant
properties it has in reducing cancerous cells. This has been known
about for 30 years.

Most of the research suggesting cannabis is carcinogenic has been
discredited. Cannabis is generally smoked mixed with tobacco, and
maybe Mr Jones would like to explain why the hell he believes people
who may be doing this harm to themselves, as indeed millions of
tobacco smokers do, should be locked up for two years?
