I am a diabetic with damaged kidneys, which puts pressure on my heart, and causes high blood pressure. One of the drugs I am prescribed damages the kidneys when taken over a long period. Either I take the tablets knowing that my kidneys will fail, or stop taking the tablets and have a stroke . Cannabis could lower my blood pressure without putting my kidneys at risk. Should I have to make such a choice when there is an alternative?
