What About The Daily Mail?

Rupert Murdoch and his rags are no friends of the truth. They have done more than their fair share of scaremongering and misinformation about cannabis. He is popularly believed to have been behind Gordon Brown's ridiculous "Skunk is lethal" speech and the upgrading of cannabis back to class B. Such are the dirty tricks, politician's doublespeak and media manipulation that we are up against. But next in line must be the vile...

Legal Remedies – A Call To Action

A friend, who I shall not name, spoke to me in despair the other day. She is a medicinal user, someone who really, and I mean really, needs cannabis because it alone enables her to lead a productive life. There are many, even in the cannabis and drug law reform community, who still do not really understand this.

Originally published in the London Evening Standard, 6th May 2003 When I read last week that as many as 30,000 deaths a year in Britain could be caused by smoking cannabis, I reacted in a most uncustomary way for a mild-mannered scientist.
