Interestingly , or perhaps not... Thailand has recently legalised cannabis with shops all over the place including garish coloured signage etc. Now flip flop Thai Government , always changing their mind, are seriously considering banning it again due to the open abuse generally., big increase in kids using and generally hasnt gone well. Most of the Doctors that matter want a quick reversal.

I recently read that states in the US which have legalised cannabis are beginning to regret their decision. The control which they thought that they could exert is non existent, dealers undercut the legal market with unregulated weed and the levels of cannabis related psychosis have rocketed.   

The psychosis is due to an influx of chemically altered imports from Mexico.  Spraying spice on the marijuana.

Has anyone on the island received any from the pharmacy?  Seems health are deliberately dragging their heels

Nothing's been dispensed as yet. There's a suspicion that this 'project' will likely be unaffordable for many prospective patients. Even at this stage, it is impossible to obtain from the dispensary a costing for one's prescription. It seems they have an idea of an OTC cost but weren't prepared to disclose what it was.

Is the paperwork now in order? Didn't our man in government read the small print?

Apparently the holdup is caused by Uk  home office & expecting licenses shortly but as Hooper confirmed any prescriptions will not be covered by health services

Yes, it has been known for some time that the delay has been down to exportation legality. I can see street weed ending up cheaper than the prescripted product. Another Manx monopoly.

Canada has become a basket case with people afraid to walk home at night because of stoned drivers mounting the footpaths , huge increase  in driving under the influence of controlled substances , 

saying that  wait until you see the figures for the isle of Man  , scary stuff , no problem  with cannabis in a proper tested and approved medical product ,  but too many grey areas , at present    and cannabis production and sales    is fast becoming a cottage industry in the isle of Man , the damage is being done to our children ,! who are currently receiving too many mixed messages
