The Science of Cannabis Documentary

I spend a lot of my time watching cannabis documentaries and news pieces and thought it would be great to give you guys a place to easily find informative videos on the facts about cannabis so you can educate yourselves and see just how warped main stream media makes the issue of cannabis legalisation.

The Science of Cannabis documentary is fairly new created by youtube user "endpotprohibition" and combines footage from other well known cannabis documentaries such as Dr Sanjay Gupta's Weed and Weed2 documentaries but provides good relevant scientific studies to help back up the claims made in the documentaries. It pulls out some of the most important facts and science behind why cannabis was made illegal and why it really shouldn't be. It's 19mins long and is a very informative and concise video. I highly recommend watching and sharing.

For those interested all the references for the video are below.
