Dr Dan has recently backed the call for cannabis to be made available via prescription for medical purposes.
Following a recent poll of MPs and further coverage on ITV News at Ten ahead of the launch of a new report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Drug Policy Reform, Dr Dan supports the use of cannabis for medical purposes and recognises the contribution that it can make for those living with chronic pain and long term degenerative conditions.
