Cannabis Medicine to be Legalized

In the Irish Free State ?
The Irish Department of Health says it hopes to bring legislative proposals this year or early next year to enable cannabis-based medicine to be prescribed in the Irish free state. They should hurry up and save al lot of people an awful lot of pain. Experts have advised that Sativex contains a cannabis extract which “is a valid treatment option”. It took them awhile didn't it. like hundred years late maybe. "Sativex is used for the relief of symptoms of multiple sclerosis patients and other ailments. It is already available on prescription in British Occupied Ireland.
The Irish Department of Health says the Medicines Board have completed an assessment of the product and “based on quality, safety and efficacy, have recommended approval of the product for the Irish market”. However market authorization of the product is dependent on changes to the Misuse of Drugs Act which classes cannabis-based medicine products as “controlled substances”. Typical Irish red tape and feck to the poor people in pain and agony. The relevant Department is consulting with more so called experts on the best way to legally authorize cannabis-based medicine, while still maintaining controls on cannabis. Luke Ming Flanagan TD said he welcomed the news on “humanitarian grounds. This is a good decision by this government and they should now move quickly to get the necessary legislation in place.” Ming was regarded by many, as being off his head when he first campaigned for this but then its like that with most things progressive in ireland.
