Sewing Seeds 

It's been known for some time that the cannabinoid system is involved in embryo implantation. Now, researchers are making some other connections: it may be involved in ectopic pregnancies: pot-smoking may increase the likelihood of these painful and sometimes dangerous abnormalities.

And, another old idea gets the boot (or, the beginning thereof). Patrilocality, the tradition wherein a woman moves to where her new husband lives, suggests that womens' genes would travel farther than mens'. Chromosomal analysis suggests the opposite to be true: men seeking 'fresh meat,' if you will, wandered far and wide across evolutionary time. Interesting.

Unrelated, but interesting: Botox may be useful in treating tinnitus. Ahh, sweet prospective potentially dangerous relief!
