Mind expansion

Researchers at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon, Canada, have learned something. Their observation: that a "cannabis-like chemical," injected, promotes the growth of new brain cells.

Read the article, and you might conclude that the guy who wrote it was high; the grammar there "ain't too good." But the news remains. While British Columbia, two full provinces west of Saskatchewan, is the Canadian region best known for contributions to this particular field of "research," these guys in Saskatoon probably know their stuff. To conduct their study, they may have even made a run to BC for "supplies."

Brent's Polemics does not encourage the use of anything unsanctioned, but the substance of which we speak does seem to enhance abstract reasoning abilities. Mind expanding activities may not be so bad for you after all.
