    Tom, I just read that asinine article—actually it was so confusing and poorly articulated that I wondered how many brain cells the author had left—and you are right. Until science catches up with pot there will be a lot of smoke and mirrors claims (no pun intended) for the public to sift through. I have a friend whose young son is currently under treatment for psychosis precipitated by heavy marajuana use. Caveat Emptor people.
