A medical cannabis prescription costing parents £1,000 a month is believed to be one of the first prescribed to a child to treat epilepsy in the UK following the government’s recent botched changes in the law on medical cannabis.
Looking at some MSM reports, the less-informed could well be fooled into thinking medical cannabis is now legal in the UK. That’s not really the case. It is highly restricted and only really available for people with the cash. In any case, Sativex, a skunk cannabis-derived medicine made by GW Pharmaceuticals, which the Prime Minister’s husband has a 22% share in has been available on prescription in Britain for years, but most NHS areas will not pay for it and many patients can only obtain it on private prescription at great cost.
