The UK government stance is that they do not acknowledge the therapeutic value of cannabis and yet the UK is the biggest producer and exporter of legal cannabis for medical and scientific use, in the world.
It has been proven that using medical cannabis can be more effective and drastically cheaper than the current prescription drugs. As the acceptance and use spreads across the world ,it is time the UK government changed the law. Granting exemptions one at a time to the most high profile cases will not satisfy the need.
Thousands of people across the UK with a range of conditions could benefit from medical cannabis and it is time the UK government acknowledged that and acted accordingly.
