  1. At 7:25 to 7:35 she misrepresents Tashkins study on lung cancer and smoking weed. I think we have more to learn there, but as I remember the study revealed that there was an "overall" lower incidence of cancers generally among cannabis only smokers compared to non smokers of anything. Not to put too fine a point on it, but I expect if these figures were derivable from the study, we would expect them to say something different, and yes it would be interesting to see if lung cancer incidence was reduced by the use of cannabis among tobacco smokers. But let me know if I am wrong about this. What do the figures say about the comparison between lung cancers incidence, specifically between the cohorts that smoked and did not smoke weed. There are a host of permutations in studies like these and there is always the possibility of external factors influenceing the results co-incidentally and a good researcher is always mindful of this seperate correlation and causation.
