Stoner's revenge

I've long been convinced, mainly after reading this book, that the national hysteria about marijuana is just that. Now there's a new Canadian study to back me up:

While most addictive drugs, legal or illegal, have been proven to slow down or inhibit the growth of brain cells, a new study shows that marijuana might do just the opposite.

It might still be too early to claim pot smoking makes people smarter, but a new study from the University of Saskatchewan shows that some of the ingredients that make up marijuana can actually stimulate brain cell growth

I have investigated the issue thoroughly and have to say that pot does not make me any smarter. I'm not saying I don't like it, but if I can't read a paragraph or remember directions while under the influence, I do not feel smarter.
However I am more creative, and perhaps the smarts come the day after. What I'm saying is the stupid wears off.
