    VANCOUVER - Not all medicinal marijuana is created equal. That's what some experts are saying as they warn about the health risks and curtailed effectiveness associated with smoking medicine. As medical pot becomes increasingly mainstream and Canada moves toward legalizing the substance, health experts are emphasizing the need for doctors and patients to consider the sometimes serious side effects linked to the various ways of consuming the drug.

    Paul Farnan, an addictions specialist at the University of British Columbia, likened a recommendation to smoke medicinal marijuana to a doctor handing out a prescription to light up an opium pipe. "We know there's something in opium that helps pain, and we're able to pharmaceutically develop morphine and other analgesics, but we wouldn't say to people, 'You have pain? Why don't you smoke opium?' '' he said. "We're kind of saying to people, 'We think there's some stuff that cannabinoids will be helpful for. Why don't you just smoke cannabis?' First of all, cannabis is actually a really dangerous thing for your lungs.'' Mikhail Kogan, medical director of the Center for Integrative Medicine at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., said he sees no reason for people to smoke marijuana medically anymore.

    It's difficult to absorb enough of the drug through the lungs, and gastric acids interfere when someone eats it, he said, adding that it's more effective to take the drug by other means, such as under the tongue. "Rectally is actually a lot more preferred because of the volume of absorption. You can put a lot more and it gets absorbed a lot better, but not everybody is open to this way of administration,'' Kogan said. "We have so many other products now, so many modes of delivery, that smoking in my opinion is very archaic and has very little clinical applicability,'' he added. "Having said that, I think that probably the majority of people still smoke because it's the most available method.''

    Health Canada officially recommends against smoking marijuana. "Many of the chemicals found in tobacco smoke are also found in cannabis smoke,'' reads its website. The Canadian Medical Association has no formal position on the consumption of medicinal pot, but it officially opposes the inhalation of any burned plant material. Association spokesman Jeff Blackmer added that many physicians are reluctant to prescribe medical marijuana because of the absence of peer-reviewed research into whether the drug is medically effective, its possible side effects, appropriate dosage and more.

    You can't imagine the body-stone or the peristaltic rushes you get from marijuana tea enemas.

    Use whole milk and simmer the ground bud like you're making chai, the "tea" is stronger than with water.

    Better yet, you can make your own suppositories by melting hash oil in a bit of coconut oil, putting this in small "bullet" forms and chilling. Shove one in your ass and you're in for a real treat--a slow release pelvic buzz that often creates some raging wood as a curious side-effect.

    One in the old lady's ass too and you'll be singing "It must be just what they all needs!"

    This is one of the most informative threads we've had yet, and that's just based on the post ratings. Now we know who's dumb enough to believe Shaynererer shoves hash butter up his ass. We also know which one finds that revolting and which one is currently looking around the house for a bullet mold substitute and wondering if using an ice cube tray would get you REALLY fucked up.

    Seriously, though:
    This is utterly insane. Smoking is by far the most efficient way of consuming cannabis, especially using a one-hitter or some other kind of small pipe. You get way more lung pollution from the neighbor letting his Honda Civic warm up in front of your house for 15 minutes. And I don't even want to know why they threw in that picture of lollipops.

    Pot use is related to health issues because potheads are way more likely to use other substances and lead a sedentary lifestyle where "exercise" is walking half a block for another pack of cowboy killers and a bottle of Boone's Farm.

    Coffee enemas and now rectal marijuana. Is it modern medicine or fucking witch-doctory?

    I actually worked for a guy who once shoved a massive ball of hash up his ass (it's a long story). I am told he was perfectly sober-seeming....until he had to stand up, at which point his eyes turned fire-engine red and he fell down a few times while attempting to shake hands with a lawyer. (Alas, it wasn't his lawyer and.....the story shifts from funny to funny/tragic at this point.)

    I'm not much of a doctor, but it was always a general consensus that putting narcs up yer starfish was limited for people who were/are unable to swallow and people that need serious relief from 'roids. This isn't like mainlining Whiskey for a instant drunk, this is pot.

    That being said, people will do the dumbest things to achieve Vahalla. I worked with a Injun, who would soak a rag in gas and put it on the vent in his truck and crank the heat, instead of doing it the ol' fashion way of a Snapple bottle and wool sock..
