The Snooper (health) Market

As I crawled the Virtual Dumpster I call The Internet...
When I Googled "vaporizing marijuana" I get  About 124,000 results (0.29 seconds).
When I Googled "vaping marijuana" I get About 161,000 results (0.33 seconds).
When I Googled "atomizing marijuana" I get About 120,000 results (0.44 seconds).

Those were low numbers compared to:
When I Googled "blazing a joint" About 3,830,000 results (0.31 seconds)
When I Googled "bong smoking" I get About 8,000,000 results (0.37 seconds)

In a second study conducted by the University of New York at Albany in 2010, researchers found a dramatic improvement in the participants’ respiratory symptoms. Two of the four participants were cigarette smokers and all four were marijuana smokers. The results showed a drop in respiratory symptoms from 25% to 83%. Also, "respiratory symptom changes were higher among the cigarette smokers (dropping 83% and 66%) than in the non-smokers (dropping 50% and 25%)” (Earleywine and Van Dam, p. 246)

And a poster like information pic I found at a vaporizer sales site:

Rx is a symbol meaning "prescription".
Rx is an abbreviation for the Latin word "recipere" or "recpe," which means "Take, thou." In the days before manufactured drugs, apothecaries (who were also doctors) would write out a formula for medications. They would mix up and compound ingredients to make drugs or remedies. Not until well into the 19th century was the distinction between the apothecary/pharmacist as a compounder of medicines and the physician as a therapist generally accepted. (more at source)

What prompted me to Google this, was meeting up with a Stoner relative and remembering how I used to love my weed.  If I were to get back into it, I would vape. I quit for work and never went back.  I spent a lot of money and time with Ella....we are all good....not mad atcha.
