A population-based case-control study found that male patients who used marijuana had twice the risk of developing testicular germ cell tumors (TGCT) compared to men who never used marijuana. Although the exact mechanism of this association is not fully explained, it is postulated that germ cell function may be influenced by cannabinoids. Do you believe this is enough evidence to persuade against use of marijuana?
