Hey man, it beats the hell out of Bayer.

One former heart surgeon says that while some people are on a daily dose of aspirin to lower the severity of problems — and the likelihood of strokes — after a heart attack or a first stroke, there’s a better way, reports Sabrina Rodriguez at Fox 40.
Dr. Dave Allen says that marijuana is a better alternative.
“Eating a bud a day will keep the stroke away,” Dr. Allen said. “No other medicine made by man can help in this manner.”

A study sponsored by the Department of Health and Human Services found that rats had their incidence of stroke reduced by 50 percent with the administration of cannabinoids.
Dr. Allen recommends raw marijuana buds — not dried ones — to avoid the “high” the comes with cannabis. Marijuana’s chief psychoactive ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is activated by the drying and curing process.
