Biography
Alongside Dr Celia Morgan & Music and Change, I developed a website on the effects of cannabis for 11-16 year olds, funded by the Medical Research Foundation. The music video and other teaching materials were developed for schools and pupil-referral units to encourage debate and provide information about cannabis use and mental health. I ran training sessions for the mentors who will now be visiting schools. The website can be found here: http://www.cannabiseffects.org/. I also write cannabis news for young adults here: http://www.cannabiseffects.org/news/
