Dear Home Office,

I understand that it is this governments belief that "Cannabis has no medicinal values"

Yet it has now been medically proven that indeed Cannabis Does have many medicinal values. In fact during many medical trials it was proven that Cannabis kills cancer cells.

The idea that cannabis kills cancer cells is no longer be a conspiracy theory. With this information, should any country legitimately say no to medicinal marijuana?

Or could it even be considered a preventative herb to avoid getting cancer?

The US government has added a page on the use of cannabis and cannabinoids to their official cancer advice website.
The National Cancer Institute, part of the US Department of Health, now advises that ‘cannabinoids are useful in treating the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment’ by smoking, eating it in baked products, drinking herbal teas or even spraying it under the tongue.”

The official government site has a long list of medicinal uses of cannabis, including: Anti-inflammatory activity, pain relief, anti-anxiety, stress relief, anti-tumor, antiviral activity and relieving muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis, and many many more.

The site goes on to talk about how cannabis has been proven to destroy cancer cells in lab experiments.

“Several scientific studies have suggested this in the past, and in April this year the US government’s National Institute on Drug Abuse revised their publications to suggest cannabis could shrink brain tumors by killing off cancer cells.”

If the United States government is finally willing to admit these benefits and that cannabis has been proven to kill cancer cells, then will other western nations follow suit?

Cannabis – is a natural herb that has a long list of benefits without the side effects of man-made cancer treatments.

The British government are preventing people from using a herb to successfully treat a multitude of diseases.
If they Do use this herb they are liable to arrest and to receive a criminal record.
Why should this be allowed?

Yours faithfully,
