I've never smoked marijuanna-- much less a regular cigarette, but I bet that if people were taught the right way to add it into a tonic or tea, it would probably have an incredible amount of antioxidants and cancer reversal enzymes, etc. that would add another 15 years on a person's life. Same with unadulterated fresh green tobacco leaves.
I don't like smoking anything, because--with the little I know, it would seem to me that burning anything kills it's God given benefits- and then you hurt your lungs by robbing it of fresh air and good ions.
Since the government has tobacco heavily regulated and marijuanna illegal, it would make sense to me that the ruling Elite knew all along how good these plants really are for humans-- when made into a non corrupted pure tonic----thus, they made it very hard to obtain for the commoner.
I will never know the benefits in this lifetime, because I cannot afford to spend time in jail or a fine just growing even one plant -- Pennsylvania is one of the exteemly strict States that penalize anything to do with marijuanna---- even if it's just to use for yourself with no intentions of sharing it.
