Dear Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs,

You have advised the government that cannabis has "no medicinal values" However, Dr Geoffrey Guy, founder of GW Pharma, is on the record stating that "Sativex contains 420 molecules" confirming that it is, in fact, cannabis.
Sativex is made up from cannabis leaves and flowers, alcohol, oil and peppermint flavouring.

Could you please provide me with documentary evidence on which your claims are based that (cannabis has no medicinal values.)

If you cannot provide medical evidence that cannabis has no medicinal values then perhaps you would care to provide an explianation as to why you are misleading the government of the uk and its people

Yours faithfully,
