"Billy Caldwell, loved and adored by the whole nation, is back in Canada with his mum Charlotte because there is not a specialist doctor in the UK who will prescribe the medicine he needs. He has written a heartbreaking letter to Santa, saying he doesn’t want any toys this year “My Xmas wish is to go home with my medicine”. CLEAR has been able to offer guidance which we hope means his wish will be fulfilled."

"A mum campaigning for access to medicinal cannabis for her little boy said she felt like a criminal as airport security stopped and searched her and seized his medication moments after she landed with it at Dublin Airport. She was searched under caution, and the THC-medication she acquired at a clinic in Barcelona over the weekend was confiscated."

"Unlike most youngsters his age, Alfie has only just un­­der­stood who Santa is. So, for the first time since he was born with a rare form of epilepsy – and thanks to a landmark drugs ruling – his family can at last celebrate the festive season properly. For the first time ever, he knows about Father Christmas."

Yesterday, 11th December 2018, the Labour Party instructed its MPs to abstain on cannabis legalisation in Norman Lamb's 10 minute rule bill.

"The proposal to “legalise the possession and consumption of cannabis” and to “provide for the regulation of the production, distribution and sale of cannabis” was rejected by a vote of 66 to 52. The Labour Party ’s whip operation tweeted in advance of the vote that the proposal “has no realistic chance of making it into law regardless of the result.”

"With THC crystals reaching close to 100 percent THC, you’d think that cannabis could not any stronger. That is until we came across stories about THC-O-acetate, another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. THC-O is said to be two to three times more potent than the THC we’re accustomed to. If that doesn’t sound intense enough for you, THC-O-acetate is made from THC in the same way that heroin is made from morphine."

"Health Minister David Clarke said while the government would show zero tolerance towards those making and selling the drug, which was disproportionately consumed by the country’s most vulnerable and deprived people, police would be instructed to show “compassion” to users. Prosecutions would only go ahead if they were in the public interest."
