An advertising campaign from the Marijuana Policy Project , the largest marijuana policy reform organization in the U.S., is blanketing airwaves with the message that the U.S. government's own research contradicts its anti-marijuana propaganda. "Warning! The government doesn't want you to hear this ad!" the spot begins, "because they're embarrassed they funded research indicating marijuana doesn't cause lung cancer, and might even prevent cancer." The ad began airing on 141 stations nationwide on September 5, 2006. "The U.S. government's own research directly contradicts the blatantly false information about marijuana that the government has been issuing for the last three decades," said Marijuana Policy Project Executive Director Rob Kampia.
It's something most seasoned pot smokers already know, but still it's nice to get more scientific confirmation: Marijuana doesn't make you wreck your car.
