I am not an expert on nutrition or drugs. But this is the very first
time I have ever heard of Water being classed as a nutrient. I have had a
considerable amount of experience with asthma though since a number of my
wife's relatives are asthmatic and one of my grand daughters suffers from
it and has since she was an infant. Asthma is a disease, often hereditary,
and not caused by a lack of water. If anything, I think you will find that
the swollen areas of the air passages are filled with fluid, consisting
mostly of water.

After long term use, or long term heavy abuse???? I think probably the

I can't address the number of "toxins" in marijuana. But I don't recall
anyone touting it as a health food. A number of studies have shown its use
to be very beneficial in the treatment of a number of disease symptoms with
little or no side effects when used in therapeutic doses, not overused. As
a matter of fact, it has been shown to have fewer and less severe side
effects than most commercial drugs especially compounded to be used as
treatment for these diseases.
I am currently using three different drugs to control inter ocular
pressure because the one drug that does effectively control the pressure
has such serious side effects I cannot tolerate using it. Although I have
not tried it, my understanding is that marijuana (or the active ingredient
in it) would perform as well as, or better than that one strong drug I
And I seriously doubt that drinking more water would have a positive
effect on the pressure in my eyeballs.
