RELIEF OF PAIN USING MEDICINAL HERBAL CANNABIS
EDM #497
Tabled 12 October 2015
2015-16 Session
That this House notes that medicinal herbal cannabis is used successfully for the relief of pain, and muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and spinal cord damage, for those not helped by other medications, chronic neuropathic pain, for example caused by a damaged nerve, facial neuralgia, chronic pain following shingles, and weight loss and debilitation due to cancer and AIDs; further notes it is also effective in relieving nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy or radiotherapy when other treatments fail, also extreme epilepsy in children, and therapy-resistant glaucoma; notes that herbal cannabis is used for medical purposes in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Israel, Spain, Canada and more than 20 US states; and calls on the Government to reschedule cannabis from schedule 1 to schedule 2 which would recognise its medicinal value and enable GPs to prescribe much cheaper cannabis medicines than Sativex which is extremely expensive.
