Just because A and B occur together says nothing about whether A causes B or B causes A or neither; double blind studies are required for statistical causality to be determined within the agreed upon confidence interval..

And marijuana most definitely has medicinal effects including possible anti-cancer effects by activating NKC (Natural Killer Cells).

Pot fans got what they wanted in Colorado: they finally convinced voters there to support the legalization of “recreational marijuana.” It’s seen as a huge victory for those who support the powers of the individual states, and a great example of “federalism” in action.
