Cannabis Report

Asked if the Cannabis report had been received, and when would we be publishing it, the PMS replied that we were expecting to receive the report from the advisory committee today, and that would go to the Home Office. But we did have a statutory obligation to take into account the advisory committee’s advice, so there would need to be proper consideration of what they had to say once we had seen the report in full. So people should not anticipate publication of the report, or the Government’s response this week.

  1. It seems the only ones that care about medicinal cannabis are those who are sick themselves. I have an Inflammatory Bowel Disease which is an incurable disease, and having tried NHS treatments I can safely say they do not work for everyone – in fact they can make it worse. Some of the side effects of their medication include hepatitis C, alopecia, arthritis, kidney disfunction and death (in extreme cases). So Gordon Brown is telling me that cannabis is not safe to medicate with? An unelected man who waited so long for a job he cannot do, is ignorant of his advisors and negligible to the nation’s health. Patients in California have access to medical ganja dispensaries and we get a 5 year prison sentence what a joke.
