Medicinal Cannabis News Network is launching a miniseries on one of the hottest topics in cannabis regulation: the medicinal benefits of the plant and the struggle of patients to get access to it. Watch part 1 which covers government interference here!
In a series of 4 videos, Cannabis News Network will give you an update on the current situation around medicinal cannabis. The news station will reveal exactly what our rights are. They will also show how governments are struggling to grant us these rights, and how international drug laws are forcing countries to set up government-controlled systems. You’ll see why patients are the one and only victims of such systems, either because they are not allowed to grow their own medicine, or worse, because they are being criminalized for it.
Cannabis as our human right
According to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted by the United Nations in 1948, anyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of themselves and their family, including medical care. Unfortunately, these claims are hardly applied when it comes down to the medicinal uses of cannabis, although things are changing for the better.
In this first episode Cannabis News Network takes a closer look at cannabis as a human right as well as government interference.
