Angus McBride is a pseudonym used by the editor of MedicalCannabisReport.com. Angus also happens to be a Christian minister who has experienced a paradigm shift in regards to the safety and usefulness of marijuana. His ministry position does not allow him to reveal his true identity at this time, lest he lose credibility with some of his congregants, whose minds may presently be closed to varying degrees on the issue of cannabis, relative to their lack of knowledge on the subject.

MedicalCannabisReport.com is geared towards those who want to know more about marijuana’s proven usefulness as a medicine, but without engaging the “stoner” or “head shop” culture.
