Dear Home Office,

"Cannabis is listed as a schedule 1 drug in the United Kingdom and is not recognised as having any medicinal benefit"
~ Home Office, 2rd January 2018

“This morning, I’ve used an exceptional power as Home Secretary to urgently issue a licence to allow Billy Caldwell to be treated with cannabis oil. This is a very complex situation, but our immediate priority is making sure Billy receives the most effective treatment possible in a safe way. We’ve been in close contact with Billy’s medical team overnight and my decision is based on the advice of senior clinicians who have made clear this is a medical emergency." ~ Home Secretary, June 16th 2018

There are over a million people in the UK who are forced to obtain medicinal cannabis from drug dealers because the Government won't legalise it for medicinal use.

1: Please provide me with copies of the scientific proof that you base your opinions on that cannabis does not have any medicinal benefit.

2: Please provide copies of regulations that states it is legal for the Government to discriminate against sick people who need medicinal cannabis but who are denied it, although Sajid David has issued a licence for a sick child to use it.

Yours faithfully,

I am the agent for the fictional strawman that was created with the name Kenneth Heskin

Dear Home Office,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Home Office's handling of my FOI request 'Sajid Javid Medicinal Cannabis'.

In your response you stated..."The Home Office bases decisions on the classification and scheduling of drugs on
evidence provided by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs.."

You failed to respond to my request..."Please provide me with copies of the scientific proof that you base your opinions on that cannabis does not have any medicinal benefit."

As you confirmed that you base your decisions on the classification and scheduling of drugs "on
evidence provided by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs.."

I request once again....Please provide me with copies of the evidence provided to yourselves by the ACMD that led you to decide (until recently) that "cannabis holds no medicinal values". You have admitted you recieved this and therefore there are no valid reasons for you refusing to provide me with a copy.

My reason for requesting a copy of this "evidence" is because your decision that cannabis held no medicinal values was based upon it and this decision has caused tens of thousands of sick people to suffer needlesly in the UK when they could've been treated with cannabis, as they have in many european countries and contries throught the world for decades. I have no doubts whstdoever that lives have been lost based on this "evidence".

If you again fail to provide me with the evidence, I shall pass this file onto the ICO.

Yours faithfully,

Dear FOI Requests,

Thank you for conducting an internal review and for failing to produce evidence that 'cannabis holds no medicinal values' because such evidence never existed and your beliefs were based on lies to deliberately mislead sick and dying people in the UK.

You also made the following statement ......"the Home Office bases decisions on the classification and scheduling of drugs on evidence provided by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (‘ACMD’), an
independent expert body that advises the government on drug-related issues in the UK"

I have contacted the ACMD and they informed me that they have NEVER advised yourselves on the 'medicinal values' of cannabis.

You deliberately misled the country for years in insisting that canbabis held no medicinal values and as a direct result, caused tens of thousands of people to suffer from acute pain and curable diseases (including cancers) unnecessarily. People lost their lives as a direct result of your lies surrounding the effectivness of cannabis as a medicine. I firmly believe that you lied to protect the pharmaceutical companies, and now we see that the prime ministers husband has a stake in the largest cannabis farm in Europe (based in the UK) and drugs minister Victoria Atkins husband cultivates and exports tons of medicinal cannabis (from within the UK) annually.

Somehow the Tory party cannot comprehend the meaning of the term 'the truth' but it certainly does understand the terms 'misleading' and 'lies'.

Shame on you!

Yours sincerely,

Kenneth Heskin
