Advisory body on drug misuse to provide framework on medical cannabis by end of 2019


This is a presposterous intervention from a man who clearly doesn't know what he is talking about. His assertions about evidence of benefit and so-called "serious harms" are nonsense and don't properly reflect the very large amount fo evidence that is available. Cannabis provides very substantial therapeutic benefit to millions of people worldwide and there is little credible evidence for any harm let alone serious harm which is non-existent in medical use. It says everything about the establishment's attitude to the the use of cannabis as medicine that a body concerned with the 'misuse of drugs' is involved at all. They have no business poking their noses in where they are not needed.
