An (at least) 120 year old woman who claimed ganja smoking was the secret to her long life died last week in India. Fulla Nayak, who by family accounts was 125, never had a debilitating ailment in her life.
She also liked cigars, palm juice and steaming hot tea. Anyone of those might have also been responsible for her increased years. Most importantly, she and many others have lived a long life and consumption of marijuana did not appear to harm them. It is time for the government and society to let go of assumptions about the harmfulness of marijuana and use the money spent on enforcing anti-cannabis laws for better causes.
