Medical and Scientific: Relief out of reach

21 Jan 2021 - Medical and Scientific

A dying man is begging for medicinal cannabis to be made readily available. Peter Fielding, who is dying of oesophageal and lung cancer says cannabis is the only thing that eases his pain. While medicinal cannabis is legal, patients must obtain permission through a doctor to access it. Mr Fielding said he had accepted death but wanted to do something so others have better access to a natural pain drug.
