Acute use of cannabinoids depresses motor neuron activity — ScienceDaily.

This scary-sounding headline simply means that when you are stoned, your neural communication slows.  Yeah.  So what?  It’s like saying “alcohol depresses your neural system”.  I think most people who use cannabis know that.  But, we all know that the effects are not lasting.  Other studies show that cannabis causes neurons and new neural connections to be formed.

So, while your brain is resting, slowed by the cannabis, it is replenishing itself?  Interesting.  Muscles heal themselves by resting in between workouts.  Could cannabis promote brain healing?  Rebuilding the brain after use and normal deterioration?  Perhaps.  But, watch out for naysayers to twist this study into something dire, by implying that the effects are permanent.
