Medical cannabis

As much as I appreciate cannabis derived medicine being legalised I find it hard to believe that anything the government says about it will help anyone.
Will a gp be able to prescribe it, how much cbd and thc will be in them, will everyone with ms be able to get it. All the news stories still don’t eleborate any details about it.
I vape bud as it helps immensely (sleep, eating, relaxing etc) I am just not convinced the goverment understand

@pj887 , and, that’s the problem. Will the Government-approved medicinal marijuana be a sanitised version which just maintains the profits of big pharma……….?

The government don’t care as long as they can fleece us that’s all they do haha the big pharma companies have their grubby greedy hands in everything and they are the ones who put opiates in everything i think they want people to suffer unless they can pay.

In the US they tell us exactly how much thc and cbd is in each product. Each strain and product has a list of symptoms it is known to treat which is really nice. I don’t know how it works in the UK. In Arizona you have to have a medical marijuana card, but each state is different and in some it’s not legal. If the strains in the UK are the same there is a website called leafly.com that you can look up different strains and products to find out how much thc and cbd is in it, what it’s good for, common side effects of each one, reviews, other products, and more. It works differently for everyone and is trial and error. I’ve found that it doesn’t really help with my pain, but it’ll help my nausea and tremors at times. I have one friend that it seems to really help with his pain. Hope you’re doing well! Best of luck!

@pj887 I think that people will still use the Dealers as it will be far easier to obtain and cheaper

I’ve always said, what else is added to the Spray and Capsules?.

Things are potentially harmful to us no doubt, is my best guess.

@guinness , don’t ya just love capitalism?

I can see regulation and licensing being employed to severely limit the market. The law of demand and supply will then ensure that this restricted market maintains a high price.

Yes, the black market would seem a better option, if you only knew exactly what you are buying.

Perhaps we need to consider growing it ourselves……….

@stumbler I value my Liberty too much to even think about growing it,let other people take the risk,and i’m sure you are aware that it’s not hard to source it

@guinness , I don’t think the authorities would bother about a couple of plants for personal use.

@stumbler that would still get you a caution, and a criminal record. The law has to change and the sooner the better

@guinness , I can see the Government getting their pound of flesh through licensing and regulation.

And, that’ll keep their capitalist friends happy too……….

@spunky Congratulations, if your not too busy can you have a word with the British Government.

@guinness I think it’s great for people who need it and mature adults if they choose but it certainly doesn’t excite me as my kids will soon be teenagers. Since it is legal it will be more readily available.

@spunky are the Canadian Government going to license shops to sell it and regulate it like in the USA , or can anyone stand on a street corner and sell it.


spunky

@guinness it’s Canada…everything is regulated so it will be sold in regulated stores. You can only buy liquor and beer in government regulated stores but is still easy to get if you are underage.


guinness

@spunky anything and everything is available if you look hard enough, it’s only the price that will be different.


spunky

@guinness I agree with you but by legalizing it, it makes it much more readily available to the audience it is not intended for.

Theses are all very good point and I agree with most of them, the UK is doing a terrible job of brexit so I don’t think they can do anything right let alone cannabis to be rescheduled correctly 😅
