Government need to listen on cannabis oil – Ed Davey

by Steve Beasant on 20 February, 2018

Commenting on the government’s refusal to allow cannabis for medicinal purposes, specifically in the case of six year old Alfie Dingley, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs spokesman Ed Davey said:

“The government’s refusal to consider allowing the use of cannabis for medicinal purpose is criminalising people who simply need to alleviate chronic pain.

“A growing number of our European neighbours and other countries around the world now recognise the benefits of medicinal cannabis.

“The government must put aside their preconceptions on this issue, and instead start looking at the evidence and listening to the views of patients and experts.”
