FDA Approves Two New Cigarettes

The FDA in it's infinite wisdom has approved the sale of two new tobacco products despite their scientifically and medically proven links to a multitude of cancers. Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought that the FDA was supposed to prevent dangerous substances from reaching the market, not approve them. This is the same FDA that prohibitionists love to cite as not recognizing cannabis as medicine. So does that mean tobacco has medicinal properties? If the FDA is in the business of approving carcinogenic products designed for the explicit purpose of being smoked then why should we believe them when they deny cannabis has any medicinal qualities? Why should we trust them with our health and well being when they approve yet another poison from Big Tobacco? Obviously they don't have any concerns for the public's well being when Big Tobacco's profits are at stake. The next time a prohibitionist tries to make the FDA argument against cannabis remember this reckless approval. And remember that as long as you have a strong enough lobby you can buy anyone including a government agency. Don't believe me? Just ask Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, the Industrial Prison/Rehab complex, and the Alcohol industry.

So maybe a few well placed bribes ("political contributions") will bring about an end to prohibition?

"The Impact Of Smoking Marijuana Regularly On Your Lungs, According To Science"

"“Lifetime marijuana use up to 20 joint-years is not associated with adverse changes in spirometric (exhalation strength) measures of lung health,” the study, featured in the medical journal Annals of the American Thoracic Society, concluded...“The distinction the Emory University study makes is not new,” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws, told ThinkProgress. “It’s ripe with citations from Donald Tashkin who has spent more than 40 years trying to answer the question of what happens to people when they smoke tobacco and marijuana. This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."
