IRELAND. "A raid by Gardai took place at the home of a single parent suffering from severe epilepsy who had just received a shipment from An Post. The Gardai let the woman off with ‘a warning.’ The shipment in question? Hemp-derived CBD. Another raid saw a graduate student return to his home and witness his parents being restrained at their kitchen table while Gardai searched their house. Again, for hemp products."

STUDY. "In the UK, medical cannabis was approved in November 2018, leading many patients to believe that the medicine would now be available on the NHS. Yet, to date, there have been only 12 NHS prescriptions and less than 60 prescriptions in total. In marked contrast, a recent survey found 1.4 m people are using illicit cannabis for medical problems. Potential solutions are outlined as to how the medical profession and regulators could respond to the strong demand from patients."

"Researchers found that 61% of the test subjects reported a 50% or more reduction of monthly migraine attacks following medical cannabis treatment. Responders also reported better sleep quality and lower rates of consumption of opioids and triptans compared to non-responders, the sub-group of test subjects that reported a less than 50% reduction in monthly migraine attacks with medical cannabis treatment."

"The coronavirus was not the first epidemic to emerge from Wuhan. The sprawling industrial hub is China’s “chemicals capital”. And some pharmaceutical factories developed a sideline as lethal as it was lucrative, churning out the ingredients for illicit fentanyl, a synthetic opioid painkiller that is 50 times as powerful as heroin."

Wuhan is also the centre of China's synthetic cannabinoid industry, providing the ingredients for Spice and similar nasty, dangerous drugs that are wreaking havoc in the West.

USA. "Sharron Cannon is the outreach coordinator for Curaleaf, a medicinal cannabis company with 57 dispensaries in 17 states. Her job entails educating patients about cannabis and enrolling them in the New York State Medical Marijuana Program. Before the coronavirus outbreak, she spent most of her time talking with patients directly. Now that work is done via the phone, email or text, including on Sundays."
