Don't know why my friend's wife Tina emailed this link my way. Maybe it's because my mother died of brain cancer. Maybe it's because I'm alleged to -- well, how do I put this wisely -- respect marijuana as a healing plant that Jebus cultivates via earth soil (or hydroponics) for us all. Or maybe she just thought, "Hey, Hickey has a lot of time on his hands and he can't read Russell Brand's booky wook forever, now can he?"
But check this Forbes story out; makes the case that:
New research out of Spain suggests that THC -- the active ingredient in marijuana -- appears to prompt the death of brain cancer cells.
If only they said it speeds the healing up from traumatic brain injuries. Oh well.
