"These high-THC buds were prescribed on November 7th by a private doctor. The Reddit user, tiekey613, said getting a private prescription “wasn’t too difficult”. “I went to the surgeon who operated on my spine a couple of years ago, described my symptoms, he did a physical examination, went through the other medications I’d be[en] prescribed, which, in his words: “you’ve had absolutely everything possible”, sent me for another MRI and nerve tests, and gave me a prescription for Bedrocan.”

"Susan Zawadzki was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) when she was just 17. Now 55, she keeps her symptoms in check by smoking cannabis before bed, preventing painful night time spasms. Susan said she was ‘joyous’ when the government announced it would allow cannabis oil to be prescribed. “I went to see my neurologist and he said he could write me a prescription, but locally the CCG said it would not fund it.”

"Many women who consume cannabis continue the habit into pregnancy; some say it helps ease nausea or combat anxiety. Many doctors encourage women to err on the side of caution. Others point to recent articles, like a 2016 piece published in Obstetrics & Gynecology, which found that use during pregnancy is “not an independent risk factor for adverse neonatal outcomes”. But there is at least one proven danger of the drug; its capacity to trigger social services."

"Mike Barnes should have been first choice as a member of the NICE committee charged with developing cannabis prescribing guidelines and its rejection of his application was greeted with astonishment. However, NICE relented and invited him to an interview. Now they have rejected him again - “The interview panel remained concerned about possible conflicts of interest around your links to commercial organisations and your campaign work in the area which means that you have a publicly stated position on the topic.”

PETITION. Stop the NHS Denying Patients Access to Medical Cannabis

CLEAR supports very few petitions. This one has the potential to work. Please sign and share.

"The recommendation from the Royal College of Physicians is that there is insufficient evidence to warrant prescription for pain. That is nonsense and flies in the face of several publications and even the opinion of the Chief Medical Officer. That recommendation effectively stops doctors prescribing. A similar nonsensical situation has arisen with BPNA’s recommendation about childhood epilepsy. Sad, unnecessary and wrong."
