Ever heard of an alert stoner--one that radiates genius wit and exceptional memory recall?

If there are truths to stereotypes, then generally the answer would be a resounding NO. We do know, however, that research suggests marijuana could prevent Alzheimer's disease, amongst many other illnesses.

Ohio State University psychologists Yannick Marchalant and Gary Wenk previously showed that memory formation in rats can be improved with the appropriate dosage of marijuana. Their latest research will be presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

They are looking to prevent the inflammation-induced impairment of memory seen in normal and pathological aging.  Thus, marijuana could play a vital role in prevention of age-related neurodegeneration.

Dr. Marchalant says benefits from marijuana use wouldn't be garnered by those whose brains have already begun to deteriorate or brains that are still forming.  Rather, for adults seeking dementia prevention.
