This blog will largely serve to educate and elucidate topics relating to what I refer to as "the science of cannabis." I invite all readers of this blog to approach it with a modicum of healthy skepticism. I will do my best to thoroughly vet all information I present here and showcase my research without editorializing it.
Sources and justification are key. If I publish a topic and you, the reader, feel like I am missing a piece of the picture or have completely misrepresented it, talk to me. Show me how you reached your conclusions; and I'm not being combative, I just want to come as close to the truth as possible, Many things are a Google search away, so think critically about what I present and use it as a springboard to reach your own conclusions.
Remember, we live in a post-truth political landscape where "fake news" runs rampant. Exaggerated headlines designed to generate website traffic abound, With Americans spending more than 10.5 hours in front of screens daily, there are more opportunities than ever for false or misleading information (presented as fact) to be disseminated to the greater populace. Although it may be difficult to avoid running into misinformation, we can always arm ourselves with the tools to navigate the minefield of fact versus fiction.
Leave a comment. Let's talk about it. Remember to #QuestionReality.
