'How To Regulate Cannabis In Britain' sets out a detailed framework for cannabis regulation. Its objectives are to minimise all health and social harms of cannabis, particularly the involvement of organised crime; to protect children and the vulnerable through age restrictions, responsible retailing, health education and information; to maximise the therapeutic and medicinal benefits of cannabis; to promote quality, safety and the development of cannabinoid science.

"The reality is if you stop for a day or two, you go back to your baseline tolerance. A 2017 study found that THC "does not have the capacity to induce physical dependence, since there is no evidence for robust spontaneous withdrawal. It's less about the dose and more about what is driving a person to use, whether it's being driven by pain or pleasure."

“The ACMD advises that clinicians in the U.K. should have the option to prescribe Cannabis-derived medicinal products that meet the requirements for medicinal standards to patients with certain medical conditions. It is important that clinicians, patients, and their families are confident that any prescribed medication is both safe and effective.”

"Patients like Marc risk arrest and criminal prosecution when they grow their own at home to ensure quality, rather than leave themselves vulnerable to the unknown substances on the black market. Last Friday, Marc was raided by armed police. They took his plants, leaving him without months of medicine."

Ian Hamilton, York University : "The speed of which it’s happening, this is all taking place in matter of weeks when some of these things can take months or years, is to be commended. How do you differentiate between people using cannabis for recreational purposes and to improve their health? It may seem very simple but I suspect the reality of trying to do that is very difficult."

@Canterburymcc @Cryptolution_ @funnystory @VictoriaLIVE @CatrinNye Of course. That is exactly CLEAR's position. It is the huge elephant in the room. CLEAR warned about it immediately Dame Sally's report was published 'Dame Sally’s Caution On “Grown Cannabis” Does Not Bode Well For Access To Herbal Cannabis As Medicine.' https://t.co/toAP5DuFne
