Doubtless a Coincidence

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Dennis Peron, an activist who was among the first people to argue for the benefits of marijuana for AIDS patients and helped legalize medical pot in California, died Saturday at 72....
San Francisco's Board of Supervisors recognized Peron, suffering with late-stage lung cancer, with a certificate of honor last year.
It's natural; how bad can it be?


  1. To be fair we'd have to know what kind of lung cancer it was.

    He was an Air Force vietnam era vet, so exposure to asbestos isn't out of the question. He was of an age where cigarettes weren't the taboo they are now etc.

  2. Clayton, I never heard of Mr. Peron before reading your comment, so I went a-looking. Apparently he was also gay. I'm guessing that statistically, homosexuality is a significantly higher indicator than smoking demon reefer, that you might die a premature death. (But on the other hand, only a fool would argue that breathing ANY kind of smoke isn't bad for you. Smoke is a carcinogen, period.)
