    Norman Baker MP and Drugs Minister for the UK Parliament, has requested that Medicinal Cannabis be allowed under UK law...you can help to, if you are inclined, write to your MP to voice support!

    Its time that our country caught up with the rest of the world, the UK and France are now the only countries in Europe where Cannabis is denied to people with serious and debilitating illness - its time for terminally ill cancer patients, people virtually paralysed by MS, arthritis and many other horrible conditions, to stop having their homes raided in the middle of the night because they are in a hopeless situation and only a plant in their cupboard can help them...

    hell you don't even have to write the letter yourself, just get the template from the link above, add your name then stick it in the post

    you can find out who your MP is here... http://findyourmp.parliament.uk/

    (for younger members, you need to buy something called a Stamp at the post office (less than 50p), then put the envelope in those red boxes you see at the end of roads :p its kind of like a PM, but slower, and theres no auto-correct function when you write it)

    I always thought it was allowed in uk for medical reasons this is stupid. Im not a smoker but ive seen some articles about it proving it helps with various medical conditions as you mention... i can afford 10 mins of my time and a stamp ill get on it.

    tell that to the terminal cancer patients who get raided in the middle of the night, or the people dying in hospices who are refused cannabis and instead forced to take Heroin (diamorphine).

    this isn't about recreational use, this about the suffering of hundreds of thousands of people in this country

    I am not sure about the U.K. but in the U.S. it helps to flat out say pot should be legal for everybody. Many see the medical side of the argument as a farce just to get the recreational drug legal and for a small or large part it is true. We are adults and can make our own decisions and doctors can certainly make a more informed decision than you or me. Something along those lines seems to be more credible here. However, small steps do seem to sometimes work better. Well fuck, I am contradicting myself and it is just a suggestion. I am sure in some way applicable to a different culture.




    hey castle which is more funny, aids or cancer?

    you know, somewhere along the way, a guy will appear in the conversation. it is inevitable. if you want gear, youll have to find a guy. and lo and behold if the guy isnt the government (military/police) and has been all along in terms of best quality highest potency. g-13 for example, thats a military strain, and widely regarded as the best.

    Agreed Krul, only seen it in one place in your fair city, Der Kroop down one of the alleys along Damrak. Isnt that the supposed Mr Nice Strain? My opinion - RAD!

    Also what IV4 said first, should be for everyone at their own discretion.

    But thats one hell of a thing not having it as a medicine, when we use opiates like they going out of fashion for the same purposes. Big Pharm always gonna choose the one that hooks you in. Lets all go Florida and Ride the Oxycotin Express!!!

    IV4 - Cannabis has been legal in many parts of the US for medicinal purposes for over 20 years, its not a new thing - the legalisation for recreational use is a new thing, and only happened because the medicinal use proved that the lies told about its dangers where nonsense (and the other side effects where blown massively out of proportion with reality)



    When you need medicinal cannabis, you don't need "a guy", you need a specific strain grown in very carefully controlled conditioned, with the specific cannabinoids which will help you - some guys weed off the street isn't going to cut it, it is not medicine.

    bollocks, plenty of common strains are medicinal, jack herer, as well as regular old white widow, for example, is a medicinal strain that you can not only buy the seeds for in the seedbank but you can easily find in coffeshops, and related is that i got some off a guy in sweden as a kid. they also have it on the streets of copenhagen.

    or what, perhaps the netherlands is a little too different for it to be a viable reference.

    yes of course, but White Widow is not a suitable medicine for everyone, for a start it has virtually no CBD, so it is useless for inflammation, for eg, its very high in THC, which is great for pain, but terrible for Anxiety, and has a higher side-effect profile than White Russian, which has high THC and high CBD, the list of strains and cannabinoid ratios is huge (400 known cannabinoids, including THC), and they all help different conditions in different ways.

    but that really doesn't apply to the UK market at all, even the few lucky ones of us that know growers cannot guarantee the cannabinoid content of known strains, because the growing methods are not consistent
