Marijuana may be good for you?

This is a rather old story, but I'd like to highlight it real quick here on my blog (h/t What Really Happened):
A synthetic chemical similar to the active ingredient in marijuana makes new cells grow in rat brains. What is more, in rats this cell growth appears to be linked with reducing anxiety and depression. The results suggest that marijuana, or its derivatives, could actually be good for the brain.

Alcohol is far more destructive and dangerous than marijuana.  Actually, marijuana isn't even the slightest bit destructive or dangerous.  Yet, alcohol is pushed and promoted while marijuana is scorned and demonized.  Just a quick thought.
