   I'm reposting this article to this newsgroup, it was pulled off 
   alt.drugs.  Hopefully someone here can help me.  Thanx.

   Receptors of THC (marijuana) in the brain?

=>nothing else known bonds to them.  

 I've read this before; I believe the discovery was made at UCLA.  

 I've also read that the study was proven inaccurate.  Are there  
 any health experts out there who could clarify this above study?  

 THanx in advance.

         "I submit that an individual who breaks the law that 
         conscience tells him is unjust and willingly accepts 
         the penalty by staying in jail to arouse the conscience 
         of the community over its injustice, is in reality 
         expressing the very highest respect for law."
