    Alimentary, my dear Sacha.

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis, in reply to Simon Armstrong,

    Depends what you mean by "colleagues" I guess.
    Reading the article back, WA's comment is not an attack on Dr Craig's reputation: rather, it is a suggestion that the organisation Green Doctors might no longer be operating entirely within regulations without the in-house expertise Dr Craig had provided (unless there are have been other hires that are not yet reflected in their published staff list).

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis,

    Have to hope they're getting the help they so clearly need.
    Separating the substantive point from the invective, to demonstrate that disagreement per se is not a banning offense, and thus to negate WH's assertion:
    I think WH was commenting that Hotu is on a register of GPs;
    though see also Simon's comment that Hotu does not currently have a practice.

  • Hard News: An unhelpful column about cannabis, in reply to Alfie,

    If there is one consistent theme in WH’s collected postings, it is witch-hunting. (Maybe even the basis for their screen name.) Possibly best, then, to dismiss their misdirected sally upthread as just another witch-hunt; note the self-defeating futility of embarking on a pissing contest about credentials from behind a pseudonym; and move on…

  • Hard News: More on the repurposed…, in reply to Worik Stanton,

    I know, right? I reported it as such 2 weeks ago. And again a week ago when it still hadn’t been removed from the multiple threads it inhabits. As I noted, persistent drug ads are an especially bad look for the threads on marijuana decriminalisation.
    Hopefully the neglect means that RB now has some paying work coming in again?

  • Hard News: The Scientology front…, in reply to Simon Armstrong,

    Justice, science, and health are all involved; we are now re-evaluating the relative weights given to those approaches, and allowing science, rather than moral panic or political grandstanding, to inform health and justice to a greater extent than has been evident in much of the preceding century. Such a reappraisal is long overdue.
    And done right, it should lead to a carefully tested and evolving set of controls around drug use, rather than the single leap to an untested regime that some opponents fear.

  • Hard News: Psychedelic science:…,

    The point being that in a much larger sample and/or a longer timeframe, hormonal cycle effects should reduce to random noise, but there isn't yet the evidence to justify that sample size?
    Even so, this is not ideal. If the effects are generally weaker in men than in women (which is plausible simply on the basis of dose per body mass) a male-only pilot study could well conclude, wrongly, that there is nothing to see.

  • Hard News: Back on the road, in reply to Moz,

    I think what got quoted there was the shared tweet that garnered the “communist" accusation.

    So that’s how it works: the virus spines burst the elderberries, and as a result the virus sites are jammed.

  • Hard News: Has Iran found an effective…, in reply to George Henderson,

    I am now picturing a virus covered in little elderberries, though I'm sure that's not how it's supposed to work. The scale is massively wrong for a start...
