    well..that’s that then….but has anyone ever stop smoking because they are afraid of cancer??? i dont t hink so…i quit smoking not because i was afraid to die but because i dont wanna be a smoker anymore just like that..as for cannabis…i know one more fact…it is now confirmed that it causes a certain kinda mental illness…maybe some kinda psycho illusion or something…
