UK cannabis laws - epileptic boy's medication seized
 
 
Gruniad - extracts

"MPs have criticised the UK’s cannabis laws and called for urgent reform after a boy had his first epileptic seizure in 300 days because the government had ordered his doctor to stop prescribing him potentially life-saving cannabis oil.

Charlotte Caldwell, whose son Billy, 12, has scores of seizures every day without cannabis oil, had his medicine confiscated from her by customs agents at Heathrow on Monday.

Caldwell was not cautioned for trying to “openly smuggle” the substance into the UK from Canada, but was instead invited to the Home Office to meet the minister of state, Nick Hurd, who told her it would not be returned."

Billy had a seizure this morning,” Caldwell told the Guardian. “It’s proven to me that, on the first day since his anti-epileptic medication was confiscated, it’s having a detrimental effect on him. The consequences inevitably for Billy will not be good. He’s heading towards a crisis situation.

“Without that anti-epileptic medication my little boy will die. That is the situation we are in. Nick Hurd, who planned the confiscation of my son’s life-saving medication, has signed Billy’s death warrant.”

Doctors can prescribe opiates - based on the poppy - legally, but medicine for this young lad derived from the canabis plant is denied.

Whilst the rest of the world legalise this plant for medical use, the heartless and uncompassionate UK Government takes away a kids life saving medicine. Fcuking outrageous!!!

They do this in the knowledge that the UK is the worlds biggest exporter of medical cannabis. Whilst spouting garbage that cannabis has no medical value. Unbelievable hypocrisy.

The Home Office really isn't fit for (any) purpose.

Not sure if it was Alfie or Billy, but at least one of them is taking a combination of CBD AND THCa. THCa is not widely available.

Moving back to the UK in August and one of the things I'll miss most is legal access to cannabis, especially the edibles.

I can't think of a single reason how anyone can justify confiscating a child's life saving medicine. It's a XXXXXX plant!! Its been used medicinally for 3000 years, and in UK doctors could prescribe it until 1971, when it was included in the misuse of drugs act.Queen Victoria used it for period pains.

The tories have their own financial interests to look after, and to hell with sick people who it could help save their lives.
