The United Kingdom has opened up medical cannabis as a option for some patients. There are still restrictions. Such as you must be prescribed by a approved doctor. Also, there is a list of aliments that will qualify a patient. This came because of two boys with epilepsy that were denied access to this life saving medicine.
Cannabis in the UK can be prescribed in cases of
- Children with rare, severe forms of epilepsy
- Adults with vomiting or nausea caused by chemotherapy
- Adults with muscle stiffness caused by multiple sclerosis
This is a small victory of cannabis reform world wide.
