That does not mean that nothing can be done by
government in relation to marijuana. I believe the situation with
medical use needs work - there should be a clear process for approval
of use in specific circumstances that does not require political
I think legalisation would have been a better result but it wasn't to
be. I also agree with your comments on medical use.
I was in the UK this year and cannabis laws came up in the pub. Like
they do :) The situation in the UK is a mess.
Smoking cannabis is forbidden. Using CBD oils is OK. These have the THC
extracted so no happy highs. But there's no regulation so you've no idea
whet you're really getting.
Then there's medical cannabis. You can get this on prescription if you
can find a Doc to jump through the hoops and is brave enough to put his
name to it. People who use this overseas regularly have it confiscated
at the border when they come home.
And that's the problem. Because cannabis is illegal drug companies and
researchers won't go near it. Because there's no research evidence to
support the benefits of medical cannabis usage the government won't look
at decriminalising the stuff.
The reality around medical cannabis use is the drug companies won't push
the issue cos they don't see enough profit in it. All it takes is
legalisation and any potential profit is gone.
