Cannabis is actually available on the NHS in Britain.It is used as a painkiller.It comes as a nasal spray called Sativex, but is only available to MS sufferers, and only when prescribed by a consultant anaesthetist in a hospital pain clinic.In the US, medical cannabis is now being prescribed as a painkiller for sufferers with a range of illnesses to great effect.Many more patients in this country could gain pain relief from Sativex, but because it is refined from cannabis, the government are being snotty about letting it be freely prescribed.Sativex costs the NHS approximately 150 a spray bottle.Morphine is far more expensive, has many more unpleasant side effects and an overdose can be fatal, but it is freely prescribed on the NHS.It just doesn't make sense to make an effective medicine made from a weed which costs next to nothing to produce, available to chronic pain sufferers. Another bit of joined up thinking from this government.Why is it legal to have cannabis seeds in your possession, but illegal to cultivate the plant ? If you can buy the seeds in high street shops for 2-3 each, why wouldn't you then plant them ? That is why there is so much skunk on the streets now.
