Marijuana is good for memory? Maybe,says new study

Sometimes science studies come up with conclusions and observations that seem the opposite of public perception.

Posted today over at Scientific American, comes a study that states that marijuana may help preventcannabis_female_flowers_close-up Alzheimer’s disease, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the production of new brain cells, thereby enhancing memory! Hard to believe! Especially since I have met a few pot heads in my time, and most of them seemed to have some memory issues…Maybe they were just born like that, and I assumed it was the pot!

The same topic posted over at Wired Science. A more well written article IMO.
