While we’re on the subject, the news came out today that a link has been found between young men, cannabis use and testicular cancer.
Some insight into how the framing of this (very small, government-funded and quite unscientific study) is being twisted and used as propaganda very close to election time, when 3 states are to vote on legalization – the mainstream media articles leave out some important points:
“The findings are biologically plausible but there is no proven mechanism to link marijuana to testicular cancer”
“While a 2X increase in testicular cancer risk appears moderately strong, in absolute terms, the increase is small (0.012%).”
Here is a review of the study sans propaganda:
