A team of 10 researchers from New Zealand, the University of California, Davis, Duke University, Arizona State University, and King’s College London, published a 20-year study in JAMA Psychiatry that examined the effect of cannabis on about a dozen common health measures, including lung function, blood pressure, body mass index, and waist circumference.

In other words, marijuana had no negative impact on a dozen other health factors, including lung function, systemic inflammation, BMI, or metabolic health. If periodontal disease is the worst that regulators have to worry about, then this long-term study could be a catalyst for federal action on marijuana and the increase in legitimate online vendors.
