With legal marijuana now available in states across the country, more Americans are toking up while they sit at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
However, experts are warning that blowing the ganja smoke can make individuals more prone to catching coronavirus.
“From China and Italy, we see people who developed COVID-19 and had underlying lung disease, [they] have more complications and die more often,” said Dr. Barry J. Make, a pulmonologist for National Jewish Health. “So this is the perfect time to stop smoking.”
Dr. Panagis Galiatsatos, a pulmonologist who serves as national spokesperson for the American Lung Association, notes that smoking marijuana has been known to kill lung cells. This could make it much more difficult for a smoker to recover from coronavirus than a non-smoker.
“A good portion of the world will be infected by [the coronavirus], but the level of severity of symptoms is going to depend on so many variables, from genetic components to just your overall preexisting conditions,” Galiatsatos said.
“From my standpoint, meshing [together] all of the variables that put in things that are not air into your lungs, I would view them all kind of in the same category,” he added.
Galiatsatos notes that cigarette smokers and vapers are also putting themselves at greater risk during the coronavirus pandemic by doing potential damage to their lungs.
“We know cigarettes and marijuana both cause cellular toxicity and changes in cellular metabolism and cellular behavior, so that would be a biologically plausible explanation to say if you got an infection from [COVID-19], you’re likely to have more dire symptoms,” he said – adding that smokers are more likely to catch pneumonia or have difficulty breathing.
Erik Altieri, the executive director of the pro-weed group National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML), suggests that marijuana users could smoking the drug during the pandemic and instead enjoy smokeless alternatives that are not harmful to the lungs.
“Individuals should consider that consuming hot smoke from combusted plant material can be an irritant to the respiratory system, especially for those currently showing symptoms,” Altieri said to Rolling Stone.
Galiatsatos noted that having strong lungs is the best way to fight off coronavirus and individuals should take precautions to ensure quality lung health.
“If you get the infection and you have good, healthy lungs that aren’t being combated every day by toxins, whether it’s from inhaled marijuana or inhaled combustible cigarettes or inhaled electronic cigarettes, you’re allowing your lungs to be at the best capacity they can to try and fight off this infection,” he said.
“I would plead with everyone to do what you can in a time like this. I know I’m a lung doctor and this is coming off very biased, but this virus will destroy this organ if it finds any susceptibility, so please keep that in mind,” he added.
Medical ‘Experts’ Claim COVID-19 Vaccine Tests are Safe Despite First Death in Clinical Trial
This vaccine may be deadly.
Big Pharma is doing damage control after a volunteer in a Brazilian COVID-19 vaccine trial died after being stuck with experimental shots.
A Brazilian health authority, Anvisa, has announced that a person had died while participating in AstraZeneca’s coronavirus vaccine study. AstraZeneca’s stock took an immediate downturn as a result of the news. They are trying to downplay the news to protect their immense profits.
A spokesperson from AstraZeneca is claiming that “medical confidentiality and clinical trial regulations” prevents them from commenting on the volunteer’s death in specific terms. They added that ”[a]ll significant medical events are carefully assessed by trial investigators” and ”[t]hese assessments have not led to any concerns about continuation of the ongoing study.”
The academics in the pocket of Big Pharma are rushing to defend the vaccine trials as well. A University of Oxford spokesman claimed “there have been no concerns about safety of the clinical trial” in Brazil, despite the death.
“The independent review in addition to the Brazilian regulator have recommended that the trial should continue,” Oxford spokesperson Alexander Buxton said. So, it seems Big Pharma has investigated Big Pharma’s actions and found that Big Pharma did nothing wrong. What a shocker.
Big League Politics has reported extensively about the dangerousness of the frenzied push to develop a COVID-19 vaccine:
The early trials of the experimental COVID-19 vaccines are showing horrific side effects, including fever, headaches and sustained exhaustion as Big Pharma rushes to get them approved for the masses.
Pharmaceutical giants Moderna and Pfizer are already injecting these dangerous shots into patients, and many of the people involved are reporting terrible side effects. There are currently at least 41 COVID-19 vaccines that are undergoing human trials right now but only Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson are currently in phase three of their trials. Regardless of the potential damage, these powerful corporations intend to have a vaccine approved for the public by the end of the year.
Tens of thousands of individuals are participating in these trials, with some receiving experimental drugs while others receive placebos. The pharmaceutical giants are underplaying the negative side effects in order to protect their cash cow. They stand to make billions, if not trillions, from the vaccines after the media has primed the masses with hysterical and irresponsible propaganda for months.
“No safety signals have been identified in the study,” Pfizer spokesperson Jerica Pitts said in an email. “As discussed earlier, safety and tolerability of our vaccine candidate are continuously monitored by Pfizer qualified personnel and a DMC, an independent external data monitoring committee, which has access to unblinded data.”
Even though they are suffering during the trials, the brainwashed saps who signed up to participate are still happy to be involved. 44-year-old biologist Luke Hutchison is happy to suffer to increase Big Pharma’s profit margins because he worships the golden calf of science and doesn’t care that his RNA will likely be altered permanently during the trials. Anything to help the technocracy take shape is the credo of the soulless globalist.
“I had a high degree of confidence it would work and I wanted to contribute to the solution,” Hutchison said.
Big Pharma and its lackeys has trillions of reasons to obfuscate the truth about the hazards regarding their experimental and unproven COVID-19 vaccines.
