hillbilly, think about it. Maybe it's a pot challenge. That's why everyone has a different perspective.

I don't understand the argument being made. Willie Nelson is a platinum selling recording artist who's been doing it for well over 50 years. Why would how Biden have more money and why would you want him to? Public servants shouldn't be ultra wealthy by principal. Is this about willie's tax problems?

I don't think you understand what "net worth" means. It doesn't mean "money in the bank."


If you own a house, car, and have a decent job, you could be broke but still have a net worth of $1 million.

Remember that's how Trump justified to Forbes that he was worth so much. I don't remember the exact numbers, but I think that he was really worth around $400 million but claimed that his name alone was worth another $4 billion.

Willie's name is probably worth $20 million.

So does that mean Biden is worse with money than Willie.

True anti, but look at old Wille Nelson. He's pickled and still going strong.

He's actually suffering from Lewy Body Dementia and a lifetime of lung problems from smoking:

Can you produce those studies, anti? None of the links you provided support your opinion.

I only gave one link, and it was directly to a study on marijuana's affect on the immune system:

Marijuana and other exogenous cannabinoids alter immune function and decrease host resistance to microbial infections in experimental animal models and in vitro.

And more if you're interested:

Smoking marijuana can suppress the body's immune system, which explains why pot-smokers are more susceptible than non-smokers to certain cancers and infections, according to a new study.


And more:


But like I said, we need more research on marijuana. It amazes me that we use heroin and other opioids for pharmaceuticals regularly, but know so little about marijuana!

I absolutely agree that we need more research on marijuana, it amazes me that we use heroin and other opioids for pharmaceuticals regularly, but know so little about marijuana!


But numerous studies have shown that smoking it weakens the immune system:


There are isolated compounds in it that may be helpful in certain circumstances, like CBGA and CBDA, but smoking it as a whole doesn't give the concentration of those compounds that you would need. It's like drinking full glasses of cream because calcium is good for you...

AIDS, who are particularly vulnerable to infections, however, indicates that there is no firm evidence that cannabis adversely affects immune function.

Instead, findings suggest cannabis use among HIV+ patients may enhance the immune system by producing a statistically significant decrease in viral load and an increase in CD4 cells. CD4 cells can be considered a marker that indicate the robustness of the immune system.

While existing research allows us to glean insights into cannabis and the immune system, we need more rigorous data to paint broad brushstrokes. According to the most recent 2017 report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), there's insufficient research on the effects of cannabis or cannabinoid-based medicines on the human immune system to draw firm conclusions.

A lot of people will be misled by this... the compounds CBGA and CBDA helped to prevent infection, and they are found in cannabis, that much is true. But pot smokers tend to have a weakened immune system and are more likely to both be infected and have worse symptoms.
