Motion text

That this House deplores the continuing criminalisation of thousands of otherwise law-abiding people who use cannabis medicinally to relive chronic pain and distress caused by multiple sclerosis, AIDS, and the side-effects of chemotherapy; and supports the simple change in the law recommended by the House of Lords Select Committee on Science to allow a limited numbers of doctors to prescribe cannabis to named patients in the same way that millions of other prescriptions are now dispensed.
