Simon (friedegg) | 18 comments Skunk 'causes damage to vital nerve fibres'
Powerful "skunk weed" cannabis causes significant damage to vital nerve fibres linking the two halves of the brain, a study has found.

The damage occurs in the corpus callosum, the structure that allows communication between the brain's left and right hemispheres.

"Substance D" being, for those who don't know, the powerful psychoactive drug that the protagonist of A Scanner Darkly uses in his role as an undercover policeman that causes the two hemispheres of his brain to function independently.

Are there no limits to the man's prescience...
