    Default GREEN LIGHT Ireland set to legalise cannabis to help treat multiple sclerosis, cancer

    GREEN LIGHT Ireland set to legalise cannabis to help treat multiple sclerosis, cancer and epilepsy patients.



    Despite a government-ordered report warning of a lack of evidence over the drug?s safety and effectiveness, Dublin?s Health Minister Simon Harris has given the green light for its use in certain circumstances.

    Mr Harris said he will establish an access programme for cannabis-based treatments for conditions ?where patients have not responded to other treatments and there is some evidence that cannabis may be effective?.

    These will include multiple sclerosis sufferers, cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy and epileptics.

    ?I believe this report marks a significant milestone in developing policy in this area,? said Mr Harris.

    ?This is something I am eager to progress but I am also obligated to proceed on the basis of the best clinical advice.?



    However, it added any decision on legalising its use is ultimately one for society and government to make.

    The HPRA advised if cannabis is to be legalised, it should be used only under strict circumstances for:

    Spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis resistant to standard treatments;
    Nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy;
    Severe treatment-resistant epilepsy.

    Mr Harris confirmed he will set up ?a compassionate access programme for cannabis-based treatments? and is now considering any changes in the law needed for its operation.

    Pressure has been mounting in Britain for similar moves.

    Not forgetting to tax it, after all the government will always find a way to make you pay more.

    Despite the cost of living, it's still very popular.

    Easy burning Co2 capture plant, polluting the atmosphere, anti social behaviour, littering street (Ash) Unlicensed burning. Must be at least a 100% tax rate without the cost of hiring consultants and feasibility studies

    Yes, but they will then give all teh tax raised to a private company who will then come back for another 50% after fiddling the books. You know how government contracts go. Once out of power the MP's end up being directors or consultants for the company, if they don't already own it.

    Well, Cannabis in Spain is illegal for commercial purposes, but decriminalised for personal cultivation and use, and other purposes other than sale or trade.
