Heady Consequences

News Note

The term “pot head” may take on new meaning with the release of a study from the University of California’s Jonsson Cancer Center. According to a December 1999 article in Cancer Epidemiology Biomarker and Prevention, researchers have found an increased risk for head and neck cancer in smokers of marijuana. Citing a strong dose-related carcinogenic response, the authors noted that frequency and longevity of use, as well as an interaction with cigarette smoking and alcohol use, further increased the risk.
