The fight over medical marijuana may have just received a positive shot in the arm, not only in NJ but across the country.

Recent findings by two Canadian research teams show that a synthetic material, similar to the compounds found in marijuana, but substantially stronger -- causes the growth of new neurons and reduces anxiety and depression.

Researchers at the University of Calgary said they've found evidence that the brain contains so-called CB2 cannabinoid receptors, previously only seen in immune tissue. The discovery, as they discussed, could lead to new drugs to treat the nausea that is normally associated with debilitating diseases like cancer or AIDS.
