There was medical cannabis news out today in the UK.
It emerged that within the next month, it will be available on prescription.
Currently, cannabis-derived medicines are only prescribed in exceptional circumstances and a medical panel has to agree.
The latest move represents a shift in the tone and the procedure by the Home Office.
There have been voices to legalise cannabis for medical purposes for years but a catalyst was when the Home Office granted a 12-year-old boy with intractable epilepsy, a special dispensation and 'urgent' licence for the of use medicinal cannabis oil.
The fact medicinal pot will be available on prescription in the UK within a month means that thousands of those with MS, for example, could be set to benefit.
