Hi! I'm curious to know what your take is on smoking pot while having sarcoidosis. Probably not best to go into details on the Internet (at least I'm canadian) but I have a theory and want to run it by you. I grew up in BC's bud culture and have used it with varying frequencies over the years, currently I smoke it. I was diagnosed in the summer with sarcoidosis of the liver. But I'm not showing any signs of pulmonary involvement. Clear chest X-rays, no shortness of breath (other than from being somewhat out of shape). It's my understanding that most people with sarcoidosis have it in their lungs. More and more I'm wondering if the mj is actually preventing the sarcoids from forming in my lungs. More and more studies are showing that it does not cause lung cancer and does not have the same effects as smoking cigarettes. The doctors have said I should quit but manly from a heart perspective (frequent smoking of mj causes disrythmia in the heart). I'm not looking to spark a debate about whether or not it should be legal, I'm just thinking there may be alot of benefits of cannabis that the medical profession doesn't know about. Your thoughts?
