"It is true, and thus the question of whether it is sad or happy has no meaning whatever."

Marijuana is Good For You 

Potheads of the world, rejoice! A new study found that treating rats twice daily with HU210 - a synthetic cannabinoid - increased hippocampal neurogenesis as much as 40%. A similar study, using THC in mice instead of HU210 in rats, found no such effect, so as always, things are unclear.

But I really must admit that it would make me very happy indeed to have the old myth that pot kills brain cells dispelled by establishing the opposite; you gotta love science by litotes.
