Of course I have heard of Cannabis as a recreational drug and its medical uses. I have read many articles and seen people on television who have benefited from it medically, but do not know enough about it to comment on the usefulness of it on specific conditions other than MS. I use to have a friend who smoked it, against doctors advice as she had a severe mental health condition which he said worsened it. She said it didn't. ? Who was right, I still do not know.
She offered to get me some to relieve a painful medical condition I had at the time, and I was tempted to try it in the form of tea, but in the end declined as I have another medical condition which I thought it might adversely affect.
Now some people are claiming it is now being used for that condition.
I fully understand believe you me, all about painkillers and their side effects, for which you end up having to take other medication, and in time you build up a tolerance to them anyway, so it is frustrating.
I do not trust Nigel Farage at all, and I think his stand on this, is aiming for the populous vote, but now I am getting too political for this forum I feel, as it just stirs things up. We can discuss and disagree like adults, and are all entitled to our opinion and the right to state it. I have acknowledged that I do not know enough to comment strongly on the use of this medicine for a lot of medical conditions, but as a chronic pain sufferer I will watch with interest.
