Cannabis for pain relief in ME? – video for discussion

This is an interesting video clip from a BBC programme, which includes the medicinal use of cannabis for pain relief by someone who has ME:

Contributions from:

Jason, who uses vaporised cannabis for pain relief;

Professor David Nutt, a leading scientific expert on the medicinal uses of cannabis, who speaks in favour of relaxing the law on its medicinal use;

And the police, who are recorded raiding the home of someone growing cannabis.

Please note that cannabis is classified as a Class B drug and it is still illegal to use it for medicinal purposes here in the UK – but not in some countries abroad.

This is a clip from a series called “Cannabis – what’s the harm?”, which was first broadcast as part of BBC3’s ‘Dangerous Pleasures’ season. The reporter is former EastEnders actor James Alexandrou.

Comments are welcome.
