Cannabis for MS: we’ve come far but there’s still a way to go

In July 2017 we changed our position on cannabis for medicinal use, and we didn’t quite know what we were heading into. It’s now almost a year since we announced our change and things have been moving quickly. In February 2018, we launched our first public action on cannabis for MS. Thousands of people contacted their MP saying cannabis should be legalised for medicinal use to treat pain and spasms in MS. Because at the end of the day it shouldn’t be illegal to get a good night’s sleep.
