The only problem with this safe, non-toxic treatment is the ridiculous taboo surrounding cannabis and lack of information available to MS sufferers. I have to break the law to buy what Dr Lester Grinspoon has described as 'a drug of necessity for MS patients', although Dr James Malone-Lee's comments perhaps indicate a growing understanding of an MS patient's desire to use a drug that does not have the disastrous side-effects of other prescription alternatives.
While researchers continue to seek a cure for MS, I, like Clare Hodges, will reluctantly break the law in the knowledge that I am doing what I can to manage my disease. Until a cure is found, I will look forward to the medical establishment and other parties changing their approach to this issue.
