U Turn on Medical Cannabis in the European Union: Patient voices
EU On the 30th of November 2016, an International Conference on Medical Cannabis was held for the first time in the European Parliament. Politicians gathered with a range of patients, activists, campaigners, entrepreneurs and scientists from the European cannabis community to discuss the future of the industry.
Of course, this was an important breakthrough for all medicinal cannabis activists. For the first time ever, patients and professionals had the opportunity to discuss a possible future access to what really is a medicine that is improving the lives of many people all over the world.
Cannabis News Network was present at this meeting. It is when the main parties concerned by an issue – here, patients and their doctors – are allowed to speak about their stories and battles that progress can be made. Watch the video and see for yourself.
