    Intelligent conclusion, I agree to an extent.
    I think this is possible, that the marijuana may have a positive effect, however remote.
    The government should spend zero money in this area(testing). And even if marijuana could do this, I'd never use this crap, legal or not.
    Other vote for me, I might sooner trust our government than a scientist, at times, either can challenge a fruitcake for nuttiness.

    Ah, the good olí Gateway Drug fallacy. I hadnít realized that there were people still propagating that bull****. How quaint. Maybe you Gateway Druggers can get together with the Flat-Earthers and the Phrenologists to hold a festival for thoroughly debunked theories.

    Mostly true, but there are a few parts of your brain that grow new neurons, like your hippocampus. When you learn new stuff (as opposed to refreshing existing knowledge) your brain stores it by growing new neurons.
