On November 1st a new and promising medical cannabis initiative called CANCARD is launching in the UK.

Currently in the UK as many as 1.1 million people qualify for a private prescription of medical cannabis but due to the very high cost of privately prescribed cannabis many of these patients are forced into criminality by virtue of their inability to fund extortionate private prescriptions. By purchasing "illegal" cannabis or growing their own in order to alleviate their symptoms they become criminals in the eyes of the law despite qualifying for a private prescription and having genuine medical need. This is precisely the situation that the CANCARD initiative is designed to remedy. (the information below is from the CANCARD website)
