Should cannabis be legalised for people with MS?
Well, we think it’s really bad that people with MS are put in a position where they’re having to break the law to manage those symptoms, or put up with relentless, very difficult symptoms that can make it hard to manage everyday life. So we looked at our position and we are asking the government to legalise cannabis for medicinal use for MS.
Rachel, Have you had any response from the government so far on this?
Gen, Not directly. We have written to the Home Secretary, but obviously when we made this position public, they put out a statement and said they had no plans at the moment to make any changes. But we are asking and we will ask again. Maybe the letter got lost in the post.
