United Kingdom Approves Cannabis for Medical Use
Authored by Stoners.org
The United Kingdom has recently approved Cannabis for patients who could benefit from its benefits. Cannabis will be rescheduled from Schedule 1 to Schedule 2; something the U.S. has yet to do. The government has made it clear that this change doesn't mean they are planning to completely legalize marijuana. The change, however, does bring comfort to many patients who will benefit from medical marijuana.
The change in policy was brought forth from a case of a 13-year-old boy named Billy Caldwell. Billy has a rare form of epilepsy of which marijuana helps him to control his seizures.
