Last night a bill on the use of cannabis for medicinal was discussed and passed in the Dail. This is fantastic on so many levels.
As in many other countries, medicinal cannabis provides relief to a vast number of people suffering from a plethora of conditions, such as glaucoma, MS, cancer and epilepsy, to name a few.
This bill will also hopefully remove the stigma and negative press around a simple plant which has been demonized by our society. It will be the first step in a long road to research on this plant and other natural medicines such as psilocybin producing mushrooms. Which are now coming to light in treatments for anxiety and depression.
