#Cannabis to be available on #NHS from November 1st Mr Javid said that to constitute a cannabis-based product for medicinal use, three requirements must be satisfied. These are, needs to be a preparation or product which contains cannabis, cannabis resin, cannabinol or a cannabinol derivative; it is produced for medicinal use in humans and is a medicinal product, or a substance or preparation for use as an ingredient of, or in the production of an ingredient of, a medicinal product’. Large numbers of consultants and health trusts, may refuse to even submit applications to the interim medical cannabis expert panel, if they do try changing doctor is the only thing I think you can do. Those suffering from #Epilepsy, #Nausea and chronic pain due to #Chemotherapy could all be given the option to get the drug on prescription, fingers crossed more illness will be added most likely after trials or if you are about to drop dead.
Cannabis is a Class B drug and that is not going to change according to the UK Mirror. That means possession will still carry an unlimited fine and up to five years’ jail – rising up to 14 years for dealers. Tho most of the time they get a fine, tagged or community work or all three. Recreational use will still be illegal. Maybe one day in the future it won’t.
But the ‘schedule’, which sets out how a drug can be used for medical purposes, has been changed by the Home Office.
The drug will now change to Schedule 2 – allowing it to be possessed and prescribed legally by your drug dealer pharmacists or doctor.
