All over the UK, sufferers of multiple sclerosis are being denied a highly effective cannabis based medicine sativex that has taken eleven years to produce.

What the hell is going on?
Medical marijuana isn’t even an option for these people.
They spend ELEVEN YEARS making a version of this medicine anyone can take then blatantly deny people access to it.
This is madness. Evil madness.
Even the Multiple Sclerosis Trust states:
“It is frustrating to learn that a number of PCTs are refusing to fund the medicine on the grounds that it is not cost-effective”.
Why are we causing people unnecessary suffering? I am disgusted. Again.
The MS Trust say they can help you appeal against a decision if you have been denied access.
And here’s a very well written article showing how this whole thing may not be quite what it seems.
