+ - Marijuana may fight brain tumours->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The main chemical in marijuana kills cancerous brain cells, offering hope for future anti-cancer therapies, say Spanish scientists. A team led by Guillermo Velasco of Complutense University in Madrid, found that the active component of marijuana — tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) — kills tumour cells through a process called autophagy. This is the process that occurs when a cell self-destructs by digesting itself."
