22 Mar “Cannabis Is A Safer Drug Than Aspirin…”, Professor Les Iversen

Prof Les Iversen

“Cannabis is a safer drug than aspirin and can be used long-term without serious side effects. It is never possible for a scientist to say that anything is totally safe. But, at the end of the day, scaremongering does science – and the public – a great disservice. Cannabis is simply not as dangerous as it is being made out to be.”

Professor Les Iversen, chair, Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs, May 2003.
