Courtesy of The Monk on the Couch: Devil's Waitin'





"Out on the corner, with cast-iron blood,
Ten thousand or more, with hearts on the run,
They say I might die, and I maybe cold,
I may have no Jesus, I may have no soul,
In prison I hear, there's time to be good,
But the first thing you see, is the last thing you should,

Well I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life in here, is the life I've been told,
Well I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life I have here, is the life I've been sold...

They say there's a passing, where all stand to judge,
But the Devil's a-waiting, with Christ like a son
When the look comes your way, you best say was I,
For the reasons you hold, give reasons to die,
The calling's impatient, but the cause never won,
But the last one to say it, may last through the flood,

Well I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life in here, is the life I've been sold,
Well I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life I have here, is the life I've been told...

And born in the mirror, where life's just begun,
And I've roamed from the reasons, and roamed to the gun,
They say I'm the killer, and thy will be done,
And the doors won't be open, when I finally become,

And I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life I have here, is the life I've been sold,
Yeah I've seen the battle, and I've seen the war,
And the life in here, is the life I've been told,

Fallin' fast, but we've no cares,
We know our Lord's, gonna meet us there,
We pray our Lord's, gonna meet us there,
We know our Lord's, gonna meet us there,

Fallin' fast, but we've no cares,
We know our Lord's, gonna meet us there,
We pray our Lord's, gonna meet us there..."

Pot not a major cancer risk: report

By Amy Norton Wed Oct 26,12:29 PM ET


NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Although both marijuana and tobacco smoke are packed with cancer-causing chemicals, other qualities of marijuana seem to keep it from promoting lung cancer, according to a new report.

The difference rests in the often opposing actions of the nicotine in tobacco and the active ingredient, THC, in marijuana, says Dr. Robert Melamede of the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs.

He reviewed the scientific evidence supporting this contention in a recent issue of Harm Reduction Journal.

Whereas nicotine has several effects that promote lung and other types of cancer, THC acts in ways that counter the cancer-causing chemicals in marijuana smoke, Melamede explained in an interview with Reuters Health.

"THC turns down the carcinogenic potential," he said.


For example, lab research indicates that nicotine activates a body enzyme that converts certain chemicals in both tobacco and marijuana smoke into cancer-promoting form. In contrast, studies in mice suggest that THC blocks this enzyme activity.

Another key difference, Melamede said, is in the immune system effects of tobacco and marijuana. Smoke sends irritants into the respiratory system that trigger an immune-regulated inflammatory response, which involves the generation of potentially cell-damaging substances called free radicals. These particles are believed to contribute to a range of diseases, including cancer.

But cannabinoids -- both those found in marijuana and the versions found naturally in the body -- have been shown to dial down this inflammatory response, Melamede explained.


Another difference between tobacco and marijuana smoking, he said, has to do with cells that line the respiratory tract. While these cells have receptors that act as docks for nicotine, similar receptors for THC and other cannabinoids have not been found.

Nicotine, Melamede said, appears to keep these cells from committing "suicide" when they are genetically damaged, by smoking, for instance. When such cells do not kill themselves off, they are free to progress into tumors.

THC, however, does not appear to act this way in the respiratory tract -- though, in the brain, where there are cannabinoid receptors, it may have the beneficial effect of protecting cells from death when they are damaged from an injury or stroke, according to Melamede.

All of this, he said, fits in with population studies that have failed to link marijuana smoking with a higher risk of lung cancer -- though there is evidence that pot users have more respiratory problems, such as chronic cough and frequent respiratory infections.

If marijuana does not promote lung cancer, that could factor into the ongoing debate over so-called medical marijuana. Melamede said he believes "marijuana has loads of medicinal value," for everything from multiple sclerosis, to the chronic pain of arthritis, to nausea caused by cancer treatment.





U.S. government officials, however, maintain that the evidence for medical marijuana is not there. Ten states allow people to use marijuana with a doctor's prescription, but the Supreme Court has ruled that federal law trumps state law.

"Had my fill,
Of the white lies,
By the bad guys,
I've been getting high,
I'm still the same guy!

We still asking why,
We shouldn't be getting high!
The Grass DVD,
Says even they don't know why!

"It's a Gaslight!"

"It's a Gaslight!"

It's gotta be wrong,
When it never feels right!

"It's a Gaslight!"

"It's a Gaslight!"

You can't tell me,
I'm wrong,
Unless you tell me,
You're right!

I don't wanna fight,
That ain't the point of this song,
But if you now know why,
Please, tell me what's wrong!

But until then,
Just keep singing along,
I can't wait 'til I'm done,
Then please,
Pass me the bong..."
