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.

Dr Dan says that allowing the prescription of cannabis for medical purposes is more about ensuring the provision of better care and support for those living with chronic pain, long term degenerative conditions and, in some cases, people being cared for at the end of their life.

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.
