Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

cannabinotherapies in Aussie

PRESS RELEASE 6 December 2004

Australian Medical Cannabis Information Service (MCIS) has struck out at yet another blow to the re introduction of cannabinotherapies.

Last week the Bush Administration took a baseball bat to US States that allow medical cannabis use, this week the UK Health regulator has rejected a new cannabis preparation that has proven itself through all the required medical and clinical trials.

Mr Andrew Kavasilas, MCIS founder and a noted researcher in the field said, "Very sick people in Australia are calling for medical cannabis preparations, the NSW Premier has called to trial this product for a number of years".

In 1999 the NSW Government formed an Expert Working Party to report on the use of cannabis for medical purposes. The report concluded that the science does indicate that cannabis has beneficial therapeutic properties and that several options should be considered by the NSW government to allow patients access.

Mr Kavasilas said "there's just so many people who have accepted the idea of medical cannabis during the past 5 years or so, trials are needed, people are waiting, who will help them, It's now up to Mr Howard to give the nod on behalf of cancer, chemotherapy, MS and other patients"

"Last year, synthetic Delta 9 THC (one of the active compounds in cannabis) was re introduced, 49 countries used over 90 kg of it, Australia bought 20 grams worth to study, are we going to wait for each compound is synthesised?" he added
