Simon Oxenham covers psychology and neuroscience from an evidence-based perspective, debunking dodgy scientific claims and tearing apart questionable science journalism in an irreverent style. Simon has written for publishers including: Nature, New Scientist, Scientific American, The Guardian, The Psychologist and the BBC. His work has been praised in the New York Times and The Guardian and described in Pearson’s Textbook of Psychology as “excoriating reviews of bad science/studies”. Simon feels strange writing about himself in the third person.

    I linked my blog to this article. Hope you don’t mind. Excellent job writing this! Kudos! Love how you list your references. I have to start doing that at the bottom of writings.

    Take a look at today’s (7/2/13) Wall Street Journal, an article in the Opinion Section by a physician entitled, “Pot-Smoking And the Schizophrenia Connection. If you can’t see the whole article, please e-mail me at rkutchjm@hotmail.com. The author is Dr. Samuel T. Wilkinson.

    I am using your article, “Cannabis, What The BBC Forget to Tell You” to help me prove my point.

    I will get back to you when I finish, hopefully tonight.

    Thank you.
