Dr Dan speaks out in support of prescribing cannabis for medical purposes

Dr. Dan has written in support of allowing cannabis to be prescribed where deemed medically appropriate by a doctor. A recent poll revealed that many MPs were also in support.

Many other European countries, not to mention several American states, already recognise the medicinal use of cannabis, via prescription, and Dr. Dan supports similar action here in the UK.
