Why Snoop Dogg Will be a Wise Old Man One Day

Worried about those 'senior moments' you keep having? Well, maybe you should have smoked more pot. According to researchers at the Scripps Research Institute, smoking pot may stave off Alzheimer’s disease. THC apparently helps keep the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from breaking down. As you can imagine, this keeps the neurons firing, and basically aids in cognition. Sort of the exact opposite of what they promised would happen to pot smokers as they get older. So, this Christmas, get Grandma a dime bag! Not only will it keep her brain young, but she will find The Family Circus even funnier than she does now! But start worrying if she starts listening to Phish on the gramophone and knits you a hacky-sack.
