I have now moved to the Big Think. I’ll continue to post links here and maintain the mailing list.

Simon Oxenham is a freelance science writer with a passion for making people laugh, learn and sometimes cry, ideally all at the same time. I take a strongly sceptical, strictly evidence based approach and try to allow my ever so slightly dark sense of humour shine through in my writing. Debunking dodgy science journalism is my hobby. I tend to have a fairly long to-do list but I always love to take requests. Feel free to drop me an email if you’d like something covered (or if you would just like to say hi). If you’re an editor and would like to use my work or would like me to write for you, please get in touch.

    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.
