    nearly finished watching it, been very interesting

    also seems the USA has listened, with the growing number of states legalising cannabis for medicinal use (put across beautifully by South Park)

    just watched through it... it wasn't as informative... but it did bring out fair health questions and how it effects, but the so called "factories", oh boy - nice :D... but it's nothing that special that cannabis has some health effects (tar in the lungs, breathing problems on too chronic smoking and might cause depression if you smoke 24/7 ), but try and drink beer 24/7 or just smoke tobacco 24/7 or drink coffee 24/7... same or even worse effects can occur :D

    Didn't " The Union: The Business Behind Getting High" State that Cannabis doesn't have bad effects on the lungs as the smoke is different from Tobacco smoke? Can't remember exactly what was said about but I know that it said Cannabis smoke doesn't cause cancer.

    I enjoy documentaries like this it explains what I have tried to explain to my mother for ages but shes got it set in her mind that cannabis is evil and will destroy me.

    well it is debatable, but according to the documentary you are correct (im not too sure on this point myself)... i think it does have some ill effects on the lungs, but the documentary did state that inhaling of hot fumes of cannabis might cause some respiratory abnormalities... it might, it might not : ) (havent seen any bad effects on my lungs or my respiratory system, yet :)

    one thing it didnt really clear up for me was the link between Cannabis and mental health issues like Schizophrenia? So does long term use of cannabis cause such things? And yes I know tobacco, alcohol causes far more serious long term problems, but im not talking about them.

    Yeah they seemed to ignore the issue entirely. I enjoyed the documentary alot but that is something they should have spoken about. Maybe it's not such an issue in America. In the UK it's all they ever go on about.

    I was under the impression there wasnt a defined link to it, as mature sane people who have been smoking for years have had no symptoms, they did mention the link to smokin at a young age and then forming schizophrenia later in your life which is fair.
    Even then, its pretty harmless in comparison to other drugs that they mentioned.
    Say a kid (10yr old) is given coffee alcohol and coke (1or all 3) for the rest of his life, he will probably not make it till about 20 give him a bit of bud and instead of dying he may or may not get schizophrenia????
    I think this whole system on cannabis is fucked!!
    That documentary just made me more angry that nothing is changing, i wont lose sleep over it its just annoying as all the other drugs are free roaming killing millions and they have no rules whereas a harmless plant is banned throughout history?!?!
    Greed comes to mind, oh well atleast it may change in my lifetime?
