Why are doctors still refusing to prescribe cannabis?

June 4, 2021

Medical cannabis is technically legal in the UK, but that does not mean you can get it. For thousands of children with epilepsy, this can be a matter of life and death. For millions more, cannabis represents a far healthier alternative to medicines like opioids. Today I am joined by Professor Mike Barnes, who secured the first NHS prescription for cannabis in 2018, and Ricardo Geada, a lawyer specialising in the field. We talk about what is stopping cannabis prescriptions, and why there is cause for hope.
