MS and medicinal cannabis

Divine Member Posts: 1 Listener
Has anyone with M.S been prescribed medicinal cannabis?
I asked about it, but was scoffed at & told G.Ps can't prescribe , only specialists, & there isn't one in Suffolk. I could go to Amsterdam with a prescription but it would cost £150  for 3months which  I couldn't afford, and no advice as to how I find a specialist.
  Any suggestions?

    Alternative medicine are more accepted now a days due to it's promising results unlike pharmaceutical medicine, alternative medicine don't give negative effect such as kidney and liver problems when it comes to long term use. As for my alternative medicine usage, I use medical marijuana. Different strain has a variety of uses and effect depending on your needs. You may check this
