I read up on the proposed 'legalisation' here of medical cannabis.
It's a hoax, alas. They are allowing some patients to use an 'extract' with one or maybe two of the chemicals from the cannabis plant.
I doubt that will have better than a placebo effect.
Then, of course, if it fails, they will say "this proves cannabis has no medical value".
Classic bait and switch tactics.
Something else helped too: the occasional joint.
"You're able to get through the time with a little bit less trouble," he said. "You can never really get back to normal. It's just a little bit of relief that might make you able to stomach some food.""
Note: He is saying a joint is effective. Is their idea of medical 'cannabis' a joint? Of course not, silly! No joints for the dying, that would be rude. 'Extracts' - a pill that costs a lot of money and has no proven effect - will be allowed to him. Bad luck if it doesn't work, he should have started dying somewhere else.
"We really wanted to come up with a form of 'cannabis' that would be acceptable to patients," said Associate Professor Peter Grimison, as he ignored the requests of his patients in favour of the lovely donations of pharmaceutical companies.
