    YOUR ARTICLE ABOUT CANNABIS IN THE HUFFINGTON POST IS RIDICULOUS. IF YOU WANT EVIDENCE THAT CANNABIS CAN BE EXTREMELY HARMFUL LISTEN TO THE THOUSANDS OF PARENTS WHO HAVE WATCHED IT DESTROY THEIR CHILDRENS LIVES. LISTEN AND LEARN.

      I understand that cannabis can be an emotive subject for some. The purpose of this article is to deliver the evidence to the public, so that they do not need to rely on second-hand anecdotes, which inevitably will be framed by dogma, dipped in ignorance and then wrapped in panic. Case in point here.
