Press Release

CLEAR UK

A CLEAR member has returned to the UK from Holland with 90g of Bedrocan medicinal cannabis which was prescribed by his UK GP. He declared the medicine at customs, showed various documentation and was authorised to proceed.

For details see http://www.clear-uk.org/legal-medicinal-cannabis-in-britain-achieved/

CLEAR has obtained legal advice that while he is in breach of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (MoDA), any prosecution would be bound to fail.

This is the most significant breakthrough in the cannabis campaign since the Dangerous Drugs Act 1925 was enacted. Since it came into force herbal cannabis has been prohibited and after the MoDA, cannabis tincture was also banned. In 2004, Sativex, a cannabis tincture produced by sophisticated modern processes, became available. Its extraordinary cost of £560 for one month’s prescription means that it is very difficult to obtain from the NHS. Equivalent Bedrocan products are from one tenth to one fifth of the cost of Sativex. Most patients find Bedrocan far more effective and it does not produce the painful mouth sores very common amongst Sativex users.

Medicinal cannabis is now available in every country in Europe except France, Ireland and Britain. More than 50% of US citizens now have access to medical marijuana and Israel has an advanced medicinal cannabis programme.

Peter Reynolds, president and leader of CLEAR, commented:

“This is the breakthrough that we have been working towards. It drives a coach and horses through the government’s cruel and hypocritical policy on medicinal cannabis. This could benefit millions of people in Britain with a variety of painful and debilitating conditions. There is a crisis in British medicine with how to treat chronic pain as so many painkillers have proved to be toxic and highly dangerous. Science proves that cannabis is a very safe and effective remedy.”

Cannabis Law Reform (CLEAR) is a registered political party which aims to end the prohibition of cannabis most urgently for those who need it as medicine. CLEAR also advocates replacing the anarchic mess of prohibition with a framework of regulation which would allow proper control of the trade and of the product in terms of strength and purity while providing protection for vulnerable people such as children.

Hi there
I also suffer from Neuropathic Pain,afer having had in excess of 25 major operations after a hospital botch up.and, like the other lady's comments I'm on Morphine Patches aswell. I DO FIND THAT CANNABIS HELPS MY PAIN, I SMOKE IT, though I do battle with my head as I know I'm going against the law, and morally I know it's wrong, but what are people like myself Who battle everyday with chronic debilitating conditions supposed To do hope? Just trying to get through the day with all that pain. I do hope that in time the Drs will be able to prescribe Bedrocan.

I'm a MM patient in Colorado, and have been for 10 years. I have degenerative spinal disease and a dislocated pelvis. I'm allergic to opiods, and Med Mar is a life saver.
I'm coming to the UK on Thursday, and desperately want to bring some pill form THC/CDB. Dare I bring it boldly thru customs, in their original containers, with my patient/prescription card and ID?

Dear Allan,

Thank you for your comment. We are sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately, as Sensi Seeds is not a legal or medical practice, we are not able to provide any advice relating to medical or legal situations other than to consult your doctor or other licensed medical professional, or a lawyer or Citizen's Advice Bureau. You could also try to contact local medicinal cannabis support groups, if you have not already done so. In the UK, there is the United Patients Alliance (you can find them on Facebook) and in the US and EU there are many branches of NORML (google NORML followed by your area name). We hope this is helpful.

With best wishes,

Scarlet
