Multiple Sclerosis And The Use Of Cannabis

EDM number 1360 in 1993-94, proposed by Liz Lynne on 21/06/1994.

That this House recognises that multiple sclerosis is a debilitating condition and that there is a body of evidence that cannabis can be beneficial in the control of some of the symptoms; and urges the Government to pass legislation so that the prescribing of cannabis can occur for the specific use of multiple sclerosis sufferers in the same way as morphine is legally prescribed at the moment for the control of pain in other conditions.

This motion has been signed by a total of 53 MPs.
