The " Lungs and Cannabis" seminar was informative and direct with some statistical findings from within a New Zealand study which is very interesting. The pathophysiological aspect of cannabis and tobacco use consumed in different variant forms and the health effects from the study findings enforce the benefits of how individuals need to change to live healthier lives. I thoroughly enjoyed the science within this presentation.
