EDM number 1752 in 1997-98, proposed by Gordon Prentice on 11/11/1998.

That this House supports the practical and compassionate recommendations of the 9th Report of the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology which calls for the legalisation of cannabis for medical use when prescribed by a doctor on a named patient basis as an unlicensed drug; and urges the Government, in line with the report's 4th recommendation, not to rush to judgement but to consult first with the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs before making a considered response.

This motion has been signed by a total of 29 MPs.
