I'm sure I haven't spent anywhere NEAR as much time looking into this as you have. But I thought stuff like this was fairly straight forward.

From http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/canc...-cause-cancer:

Cannabis smoke contains many of the same cancer causing substances (carcinogens) as tobacco - at least 50 of them. In addition, cannabis is often mixed with tobacco when smoked.

Break down of the contents of marijuana smoke which lists known carcinogens and summary of various case studies:

Ask yourself, why is it important to you that marijuana be portrayed as some wonder-drug-cure-all AND as something with no negative effects? That's not needed. Thou dost protest too much.

In my opinion, attempting to be as objective as possible, I think marijuana should be legal. But I don't share your other views on it, nor do I currently smoke it.
