Canadian marijuana researchers – that would be a pretty big segment of the population if we're talking British Columbia – have discovered that reefer actually improves memory:
A team at the University of Saskatchewan headed by Xia Zhang found that injections of a potent HU210 synthetic substance that mimics the active ingredients in cannabis increases the production of neurones in the hippocampus area of the brain in rats.

The region is associated with learning and memory, as well as anxiety and depression.

"The implication is that smoking marijuana is a good thing," Mr Zhang told AFP.

The discovery may eventually lead to the next blockbuster anti-depressant drug treatment, he says.

"It is possible this might overtake Prozac."
Canada, marijuana nation. Now let's see, where did I put that roach clip?
