Millions of Brits buy cannabis illegally to treat conditions like cancer and MS

Around 1.4million Brits buy cannabis illegally to treat medical conditions.

They include 100,000 cancer patients, 50,000 people with multiple sclerosis and 250,000 with arthritis, a YouGov survey has claimed.

Experts have begged the Government to change the law to give patients legal access.

Steve Moore, of the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis, said: “These shocking findings quantify what we long suspected – almost 3% of the UK adult population are choosing to use cannabis rather than traditional pharmaceutical products.”

The Department of Health said: “We have changed the law to allow patient access to cannabis-based products.”

Taxpayers have also spent more than £2.5billion processing up to 8,000 criminals a year for cannabis offences since 2015.

For most adults with a healthy immune system, symptoms will disappear after about a week (although it feels never ending).

Pot imports to U.S. grow as country stalls on medical research

One of the top advocates for allowing U.S. companies to grow cannabis for research purposes has imported a batch from the Netherlands, saying he had no choice because of the lack of progress at home.

California-based Biopharmaceutical Research Co., founded by former Navy SEAL George Hodgin, legally imported a small quantity of marijuana from Bedrocan International last month to use for scientific analysis with the goal of better understanding the plant.

“As someone who fought for this country it saddens me that Americans aren’t the ones producing the cannabis materials that we are researching,” Hodgin said in an interview.
