Save Yourself, Smoke Weed. This Guy Did and He Became Governor of California.
Some pretty eye-opening claims for the medical properties of marijuana. Four claims in total. Here's the rundown. Cannabis actually facilitates the growth of new brain cells. Next, cannabis prevents Alzheimer's. The third claim is that cannabis can prevent brain damage after strokes and trauma. Finally, cannabis extracts have been shown to fight brain cancer.
A cautionary note. The AlterNet article is written by Dana Larsen who leads a group trying to garner enough support to force the BC government to put marijuana legalization to a referendum.
Still and all, the article does have hyperlinks to studies or reports that seem to bear out his claims. I think Mr. Larsen's best bet is to focus on this Alzheimer's thing. We're all terrified of getting it and I expect a good many people would go for something they believed might, just might ward it off.
