Re-Legalising Medicinal Cannabis

EDM number 372 in 2017-19, proposed by Paul Flynn on 11/10/2017.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases, Drugs misuse, Health services and Medical ethics.

That this House believes that it is the duty of the good citizen to challenge laws that oppress the sick and the powerless and deny them their medicine of choice; congratulates the United Patients Alliance for the act of mass civil disobedience in challenging the discredited, cruel and unenforceable law that criminalises thousands of seriously ill patients for using natural cannabis to relieve symptoms of severe pain and spasm; and thanks the police for its wise restraint and the Multiple Sclerosis Society, two police and crime commissioners and hon. Members for their support for a new compassionate and practical reform of medicinal cannabis use to replace the present irresponsible black market with a legal market that can be regulated, removing the threat of prosecution from those already suffering disproportionately the burdens of life's misfortunes.

This motion has been signed by a total of 19 MPs.
