    Study finds no link between pot, cancer

    Researchers found that the cancer-causing effects of marijuana appear to be of less concern than previously thought.

    BY MARC KAUFMAN
    Washington Post Service

    The largest study of its kind has unexpectedly concluded that smoking marijuana, even regularly and heavily, does not lead to lung cancer.

    The new findings ''were against our expectations,'' said Donald Tashkin, of the University of California at Los Angeles, a pulmonologist who has studied marijuana for 30 years.

    ''We hypothesized that there would be a positive association between marijuana use and lung cancer, and that the association would be more positive with heavier use,'' he said. ``What we found instead was no association at all, and even a suggestion of some protective effect.''

    Federal health and drug enforcement officials have widely used Tashkin's previous work on marijuana to make the case that the drug is dangerous. Tashkin said that while he still believes marijuana is potentially harmful, its cancer-causing effects appear to be of less concern than previously thought.

    Earlier work established that marijuana does contain cancer-causing chemicals as potentially harmful as those in tobacco, he said. However, marijuana also contains the chemical THC, which he said may kill aging cells and keep them from becoming cancerous.

    The study, funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Institute on Drug Abuse, involved 1,200 people in Los Angeles who had lung, neck or head cancer and 1,040 people without cancer matched by age, sex and neighborhood.

    Tashkin found that even the very heavy marijuana smokers showed no increased incidence of the three cancers studied.

    ''Bias can creep into any research, but we controlled for as many confounding factors as we could, and so I believe these results have real meaning,'' he said.
