How a good blunt makes you sharp

"Chronic use of marijuana may actually improve learning memory when the new neurons in the hippocampus can mature in two or three months."

-Xia Zhang, an associate professor with the Neuropsychiatry Research Unit at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon

My prediction (Ok, so I stole it from Phillip K. Dick) is that in 20 years pot will be legal and sold over the counter, but you'll only be able to get ciggarettes on the blackmarket.

Heh. I was actually reminded of the scene in Woody Allen's Sleeper when shortly after Miles is revived the doctors encourage him to smoke cigarettes ("be sure to get the smoke deep into your lungs"). When Miles protests the doctors assure him that the doctors in Miles' time had it all wrong.
