About

Max has been writing about cannabis and psychedelics for several years now. With a strong belief that an open, honest attitude toward drugs and drug policy can improve the lives of many, he seeks to offer insightful and developed opinions on the subject.

While he thinks that it is up to each person to decide how to affect their conscious experience, Max also believes that a collective and compassionate consideration of the effects of doing so is vital. Max studied a BA (Hons) Politics and Philosophy degree at the University of Sussex, and this taught him the value of an effective, well-thought-through argument and thorough research. As much as he can, Max seeks to exercise this in all his work.
