It is estimated that as many as 1 million people across the UK rely on cannabis for medical reasons. Many of these people are suffering chronic and painful conditions.
Currently available medicines don't always work for them, cannabis does. These people are faced with a terrible dilemma - continue to suffer or take the risk of breaking the law, just like the character Izzy in the TV soap Coronation Street. This is morally wrong: they are patients, not criminals. All they want to do is lead a normal life. Medicinal cannabis is legal in many countries including much of the USA, Canada, Germany and Italy to list just a few. Sick people in our country deserve the same access to medicinal cannabis.
The government's policy of prohibition depends on ignorance and fear and there has been a huge amount of hype, misinformation and downright lies put about in support of it. The best defence against all this is the truth, so UKCIA aims to tell the truth about cannabis, warts and all.
