New Scientist Special Report

Discussion in 'Marijuana News from The USA' started by kees_67, Nov 5, 2001.

  1. I can remember the "newscientist" being somewhat anti-marijuana . Are they still slanted towards false information ?

    Never mind ....I clicked the link.........they are ! :(
     
  2. i read it and it seems fairly even
     
  3. A quote from NewScientist.com "Heavy users of marijuana who suddenly go cold turkey have aggressive impulses as powerful as those felt by people taking anabolic steroids."

    I consider myself a chronic user (hehe pun intended) of weed and I never once wanted to spindle anyone because I ran dry. Maybe I am an exception but that seem incorrect to me.

    Seems slanted just by looking at the inflammatory titles.
     
  4. yeh your probably rite. that blurb did seem a bit overblown

    actually no, sod that. that quote you mentioned about steroids doesnt even feature in that article. what are u talking about???
     
  5. Sorry bout that I re-read it and it wasnt very clear the article I quoted was a different one. I made a link to that article in my previous post. It caught my eye because the title was "Reefer Madness" and as you can see I have a bad case of it right now!!! :D
     
  6. It's a little confusing to me ,because the site is registered to
    Reed Publishing. They seem to be more into registering web sites than anything else. The headlines at newscientist are designed to be inflamatory ,agreed ,and the information is for the most part unsubstantiated and subjective. What someone has read as opposed to what someone experienced or researched. (at least that appears to be the style used)
    Some of Reed Publishing's sites registered to them (this is by no means a conclusive list) are included below......Seems to me they are into a number of things.

    In any event I contacted the parent company of Reed Publishing Ltd. and courteously thanked them for supporting my cause ,of informing citizens of the 'truth' about how truely harmless/and extremely useful marijuana can be.:)
