A personal account of witnessing how life isn’t as easy for medical cannabis patients as the outside world might seem.
Regulating cannabis for all adults and those who need it medically will ensure that patients are not caught in the cross fire when the police are in their continued pursuit of healthy people that enjoy cannabis consumption also.
Let’s not box ourselves in by gifting a medical cannabis monopoly to the pharmaceutical industry when there are many examples of the highest standard of cannabis that have worked from the ground up.
Let’s not forget who we as patients have turned to to provide us medical cannabis over the last few decades? The recreational, personal and commercial growers.
There are potentially 10,000 to 20,000 jobs in the Uk cannabis industry yet to come if it is not monopolised and £12.5bn a year to the UK economy. Disallowing British people these opportunities to grow businesses from the ground up in favour of a New York style system would be detrimental to progress in the UK. Wider regulation is a policy that benefits the many, not just the few.
This week school budgets were being discussed, a quick glance at Colorado’s measure to regulate cannabis for all adults meant that there were $ Millions available to be pumped into schools, it was even designated to the school’s before the legalised it – why not have the UK makethe same deal. Is this not a policy that the British public, medical, consumer or not at all can get behind?
As we move forward we must retain the right to home grow, ensure social spaces are made part of the model so that people can be humans and interact – something that medical cannabis patients have described as essential for improving their health second to accessing good quality safe cannabis – socailising is good for health. Many of these disabled members will be able to fulfill jobs in these clubs which will not only benefit society but massively improve the confidence and mental health of patients that have been down trodden by a system of prohibition for quarter to half a century.
