(op-ed: the nz government could also do this – no need to piss $20 million down the gurgler on a referendum – polling for years has shown consistent support for med-pot – all the government has to do is ok it – no need for legislation – the powers are already there/to hand – so really – why the hell are we continuing to deny proven medical relief for sufferers here/now – and why are we wasting all that money..?
are our politicians/this government really so gutless..?…so afraid to do what the people who put them there clearly want..?..
why don’t they just get their act together – and bloody well do it..!..)
Medical cannabis will be made available on prescription after it was approved for use by the government.
Doctors will be able to prescribe medicine derived from marijuana ‘by the autumn’ the Home Office announced.
The home secretary Sajid Javid said: ‘Recent cases involving sick children made it clear to me that our position on cannabis-related medicinal products was not satisfactory.
Following advice from two sets of independent advisors I have taken the decision to reschedule cannabis-derived medicinal products – meaning they will be available on prescription.
This will help patients with an exceptional clinical need’.
