40. We evolved around the fire pit, you know. Fire was life, and also
smoke. How did we evolve to never ingest smoke into lungs, while also requiring fire for light and heat for the majority of human history? Please explain.
Also, to use marijuana, particularly as medicine, smoking it is not required, and it at times counterindicated. The medicinal elements can be ingested as vapor, as food, as oil, it can be in a capsule, if that is calming for the pill generation, you name it. No need to smoke it at all.
The fact is the medicine treats many serious maladies, gives eyesight to the blind, comfort to those in pain, courage and a stomach to those enduring chemo. It saves lives and the quality of lives.
So those are facts, just as it is a fact that we evolved standing next to raging, smokey fires, every day. We did. We built fires and stood around them, for thousands of years/.
