Good News For Potheads

Although I'm a bit dubious about any news emanating from something called the "David Geffen School of Medicine," this report seems to indicate that there's no link between smoking marijuana and lung cancer, no matter how much of the stuff you smoke. In fact, pot may even help protect you against cancer because its active ingredient, THC, kills old cells, the ones which are most likely to turn cancerous.

The report didn't mention marijuana's effect on brain cells, whether it killed them outright or lulled them into a state of suspended animation, but based on the latest evidence, it would appear that potheads can look forward to a long, healthy life of babbling incoherently, muttering non sequiturs and in general being incredibly annoying to everyone except themselves. Hooray.
