Cannabis oil 'available on prescription NEXT MONTH in UK'

CANNABIS oil will be available on the NHS next month, the Home Secretary has reportedly confirmed.
Sajid Javid said From November 1 UK laws will change to make medicinal cannabis-based products available for prescription, according to MailOnline.

In June, the Home Sec said Britain’s Misuse of Drugs Relations act – which was passed in 2001 – was under review.

He said in a statement: “I have been clear that my intention was always to ensure that patients have access to the most appropriate course of medical treatment.
“These products could be available to be prescribed to patients”

“I stressed the importance of acting swiftly to ensure that where medically appropriate, these products could be available to be prescribed to patients.



“I have been clear that this should be achieved at the earliest opportunity whilst ensuring that the appropriate safeguards were in place to minimise the risks of misuse and diversion.”
