I am an expert on cannabis

Have your say

In response to Jan McCormick’s letter, I did not say cannabis is ‘safe’, I said it’s not dangerous.

Unlike her, I supported my claims with scientific evidence.

As is typical of those taking this position, she makes abusive and false personal remarks and then fails to offer any evidence.

I’m an expert on the subject after 30 years of study.

She says ‘cannabis robs you of youth. This is meaningless rot! Is it irresponsible to tell the truth instead of the lies of Judge Goldsack? Is it misleading to present scientific evidence instead of prejudiced assertions?

In 2009 there were 750 hospital admission for cannabis. The risk of a single psychotic episode linked to cannabis is at worst 0.013%.
