I am not a believer in drugs either, but maybe time to get a greenhouse and jump on the bandwagon.

I am however ugly as hell, so I may not do too well.

Jersey now allows GPs to prescribe cannabis products for medicinal use and has now permitted research. We of course know better!

I thought we were the same as in allowing medical use if prescribed ?

I may have it wrong Dilli, a friend of a friend was using Cannabis Oil to ease the symptoms of terminal cancer, this was obtained by his family and they explained this to medical staff who called the police. Obviously no charges were brought but they were told to stop.

I will look into it just to make sure I am on the right track

It looks like we’ve missed the boat again. This is really good PR for Guernsey

On the plus side of things, if we do go for it and the UK don't, we have a load more space to grow it than the C.I.'s

Then prosecute him for petty crime then, smoking pot is victimless.

Unless driving under the influence.

So what is happening on the cannabis front?

Alex Allinson, our only liberal from what I can see, had the following motion at the July Tynwald -

"That Tynwald notes the results of the recent consultation regarding medicinal cannabis; and is of the opinion that the Minister for Health and Social Care should lay regulations at or before the November 2019 sitting of Tynwald enabling the licensed cultivation of cannabis for medicinal use and export."

Perfectly reasonable and potentially fantastic for the economy.

The boy vampire then squashed it completely and put his amendment, which was accepted -

"That Tynwald notes the update provided by the Minister for Health and Social Care, and further notes: that regulations for the production and cultivation of industrial hemp are already active and extend to the Island; that the Department will seek to use the same application process and forms as that provided within the United Kingdom in relation to industrial hemp; that regulations and legislation for the cultivation and export of medicinal cannabis are active and extend to the Island; that the Department is currently assessing how an appropriate regulatory regime in relation to the cultivation and export of medicinal cannabis can be introduced, and the costs associated with such a regime; that the Minister for Health and Social Care will provide an update by way of a statement to the October 2019 sitting of Tynwald Court; and that the Department is currently consulting with relevant medical practitioners on the results of the consultation in relation to the way forward in relation to the prescribing of medicinal cannabis."

The tumbleweed must have rolled through the chamber.

I have been to so many business presentations where a government wallah (politician or civil servant) trots out the "we have a fleet of foot government which can get things done quickly".  That's just bollocks, isn't it?

Jersey or Guernsey will beat us in this area and get all the benefits.

Let Jersey and Guernsey test the water.

There are too many stoners and pot heads hanging onto the periphery of the 'medicinal cannabis' thing, adding to the nervousness of politicians on this matter.
