More Marijuana 

The medical marijuana 'debate' (if you can really call it that) still rages, but more and more evidence supports the reasonable conclusion: there's a lot of good medicine in pot. A study released today in Cancer Research, shows that Δ-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, a.k.a. THC, is a potent in vitro and in vivo inhibitor of tumor angiogenesis, and seems to be effective against one of the nastiest types of brain tumor, Glioblastoma multiforme.

Previous research also shows THC's ability to affect apoptosis and other aspects of cell cycle regulation. But don't worry kids: all these things don't seem to happen just from smoking pot (unless you smoke A TON)!
