I have Asthma and it does help, after twenty years on and off (weed) I think I'd know. If I'd ever use it again I'd vaporize it like said^ and the following links but due to legality's and work here I don't enjoy benefits of any drug other than Albuterol and that is only for attacks and sucks (no pun.) Cannabis (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC,) as well as other related compounds) can be altered to remove recreational effects for different treatments unlike oxycontin and such. Now that it's getting legal places they are making concentrated oils^ and other there's even lip balm or skin lotions to get effects. I also support it recreationally as a safer alternative and to fix frivolous "law$," I felt safer and enjoyed it more than anything. Not to say that someone abusing drugs will be safe but why do they abuse drugs??? Not because they are or aren't avalabal!!!

For one, you can cut out the smoke. The most common pharmaceutical method of treating asthma attacks is through the use of corticosteroids delivered through inhalers that vaporize the medication. Asthma patients may also be familiar with a nebulizer, which is a tabletop machine that does the same thing. Sound familiar? Cannabis vaporizers have been improving in quality and growing in popularity. Some are sleek and pocketable for treatment on the go and are generally considered to be a safer alternative to smoking. When THC is delivered through a vaporizer, it still has the almost immediate bronchial dilation effects without the harmful smoke. Vaporizing cannabis isn’t really all that different from the current accepted treatments, just with what may be a more effective drug.

Let's get our facts straight!

"Moderate Marijuana Use Does Not Impair Lung Function, Study Finds" New York Times, January 11, 2012

http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/0...gs-study-finds

But if smoking is a concern (it is possible that future studies will overturn our current medical evidence), you have the alternative to vaporize it, or you can take it orally or as a suppository. (While putting it up your *** might sound strange, it is actually very useful for medical patients with extreme nausea who can't keep food down.)

Wait a minute! I just thought of an argument why drugs that grow as a plant and require no refining should be kept illegal! Without that, how are governments going to raise fast (and hidden) cash to finance illegal "police actions" in other countries and suppress "undesirables"?

If you didn't guess already my tongue is firmly in cheek and eyes rolling. Justice may be blind but not in the right way. Laws are not applied equally as they should be.

Oh they'd find other way$ but it sure would help and explains why it's taking $o long. Just found some texts on that subject (the first ones a good read:)

We can make alcohol anywhere, here (WI) legally. I use apple concentrate and a wine-making-yest, tastes like a good beer. Not sure if stills are "allowed" but I only like a beer or mixed-drink a couple times a month if that (less if safer more enjoyably to me alternatives were legal but they profit too much for that.) Seems crazy to me to legalize most substances like they should and then say you can't make or grow them or at lest get a permit? I'd like to make Marijuana+pasta ++ and some caramels ++ for desert but oh well at lest I can still grow chives and tomatoes for now at some point they may decide they are loosing to much money on the genetically altered stuff and say among other s*** "people can't be trusted to grow their own safe foods!" This kinda reminds me of the power companies that want to charge solar and wind users because by making their own power "their not helping to up keep the grid" ah their feeding the grid you {names called!}

Unhappy

Simple as a plant: http://youtu.be/UWNo6W1ZNDk . . . my nephew (picture in my blog ) at ten years old now is going for another MRI tomorrow to see if the mass causing double vision and headaches is a blood clot or his second run at this F-ing **** called cancer?!?
