Interview with Representative Brett Hulsey (Youtube)
In the interview, Representative Hulsey states that he will probably vote for the Bill, but expresses concerns that marijuana may cause lung cancer.
However, Pulmonary specialist and Federal Government researcher Dr. Donald Tashkin from the UCLA Geffen School of Medicine finds that marijuana does not cause lung cancer in his study on the effects of cannabis and the lungs.
This study of more than 2,000 people found no increase in the risk of developing lung cancer for marijuana smokers. (http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=large-study-finds-no-link)
