Student Information


Due to the many enquiries we receive via email from students at all levels of study, we now provide these guidelines on how to use our site to gather the information you require.

If, after trying ALL the ways described below, you still have unanswered questions, then email here with your SPECIFIC questions. We will try to answer your queries as soon as possible, however, due to workloads, we may take some time to respond.

How to find stuff on our site

Firstly view our lecture notes that we use when we give lectures at academic institutions – click here. This covers briefly the following topics:

Prevalence of cannabis use, Info on our surveys, Cannabis convictions, Frequency of cannabis use, Amounts used- user ratings – male & female statistics, Initiation to drug use - the ‘stepping stone’ hypothesis reconsidered, Use of Other Drugs, Busts/deterrence, The Cannabis Market – prices, Methods of Cannabis Use, number of ’spliffs’ (reefers) smoked per day, Settings of use, Reasons for use, Cannabis and Health - Medicinal use, Cannabis and Driving, Policy Options - Decriminalisation & alternatives, It contains many graphs & data tables.

After reading the document if you still have unanswered queries then navigate to our drugs information page – click here. Navigate to the relevant section where more information on the above subjects is available.

Also check out our drug prices section & medicinal information. Also check out our article downloads in pdf.

If you still need info – use the search function.

If after you have done all the above, you still need specific information then email here

Don’t assume because you cannot find it straight away that it is not there, do a search.

Don’t just go straight to the email option – we will be able to tell if you have tried the above options first or not. When emailing – put a relevant subject in the subject box.

Do not ask us vague general questions, especially when the info is already on our site – if you read enough.
