01-08-2018 | Medical cannabis to be legalised in the UK

Specialist doctors in the UK will be able to legally prescribe cannabis-derived medicinal products by the autumn, says UK Home Secretary, Sajid Javid.
Following pressure from high-profile cases involving children with severe epilepsy being denied access to cannabis oil, the Government has had to respond.
Whilst other forms of cannabis will remain illegal, an expert panel has reviewed the situation and found that medical cannabis will help patients with an exceptional clinical need and therefore the law is changing accordingly.
The decision has been welcomed by campaigners and health experts, including the Royal College of Nursing.
