Cannabis smoke contains thousands of organic and inorganic chemical compounds. This tar is chemically similar to that found in tobacco smoke,  and over fifty known carcinogens have been identified in cannabis smoke,  including; nitrosamines, reactive aldehydes, and polycylic hydrocarbons, including benz[a]pyrene.  Light and moderate use of cannabis is not believed to increase risk of lung or upper airway cancer. Evidence for causing these cancers is mixed concerning heavy, long-term use. In general there are far lower risks of pulmonary complications for regular cannabis smokers when compared with those of tobacco.  Combustion products are not present when using a vaporizer , consuming THC in pill form, or consuming cannabis foods .
The topic of my master’s thesis evolved not only from my own interest and fascination of jacquard weaving. A little bit of luck contributed to the final outcome of this study as well. At an early point of my study, I wanted to discuss the material and col-our design of woven textiles. I considered various ways on how to approach the subject from a fresh and meaningful point of view. In the beginning of the spring of 2014, I spent three months on an internship at the Italian weaving mill Lodetex. Lodetex is specialized in the production of jacquard fabrics for furnishing markets. I decided that doing my thesis in collaboration with Lodetex would be a viable continuum after working in the company as an intern. I discussed the matter with owner Luca Farhanghi and he agreed that a thesis collaboration would be interesting and beneficial for the both of us. He informed me about a few production lines that the company planned on developing. One of these lines related to clipped designs. To me, the development of clipped designs seemed like a fascinating and interesting topic to research. Since I had already designed two clipped designs during my internship, I realized that the weaving process of these fabrics required more advanced technical understanding in interwoven structure of cloth. Therefore, this project gave me a chance to improve my skills in artistic expression as well as develop my knowledge in designing, weaving and finishing of clipped cloths.
The Curator Ad Litem then compiles a detailed report, which should contain two independent letters from certified medical practitioners who have examined the patient and are of the opinion that the patient is unable to manage their own affairs. This report is then served on the offices of the Master of the High Court, who then is responsible for approving the application for a Curator Bonis. The Master's office then compiles a report in which it either supports or rejects the application.
