Marijuana may raise testicular cancer risk: study

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Marijuana use may increase the risk of developing testicular cancer, in particular a more aggressive form of the disease, according to a U.S. study published on Monday.

The study of 369 Seattle-area men ages 18 to 44 with testicular cancer and 979 men in the same age bracket without the disease found that current marijuana users were 70 percent more likely to develop it compared to nonusers.

How about that? It is supposed to help with glaucoma but you get some awesome testicular cancer. That's a tough call, blind or ball-less.

In other news, drinking alcohol causes sclerosis of the liver.
It's a true statement, not like this one...
