If anyone is finding it expensive to travel to London for the Cannabis Hypocrisy Protest on Wednesday 9th October, Megabus are currently running an offer called "we love Wednesdays" which means you can travel on any route across England and Wales for just £5 each way which means that you will not have to pay more than £10.50 (inc 50p booking fee) for a return journey to London!
Please try to get down to London and show your support in highlighting the hypocrisy and legal anomaly that exists which would see UK citizens arrested for doing what almost all other EU citizens are legally allowed to do here in the UK, namely medicate with herbal cannabis!!
Dr. Thomas Orvald argues that Doctors have created a global problem with the over prescription of opiate based pain relieving medication but sees cannabis as a healthier, safer and more effective alternative. Do you suffer from a condition requiring pain relief? Have you asked your GP/pain specialist about being prescribed a cannabis based medicine? The Cannabis Support Network is here to assist you with with your application for cannabis based medication so please get in touch if you need any help or advice.
We will be attending a public meeting with the South Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner on the 2nd October...we will be highlighting why we feel current policy regarding the use of certain substances by certain people is not only a failure but also harmful by presenting a comprehensive argument. We will then challenge the Police and Crime Commissioner to justify a continuation of such a failed and destructive policy! Click below for further details and to secure your place at the meeting. All activists in the South Yorkshire area are urged to attend! Let's get this issue debated in public!!

Sorted!! East Midlands Cannabis Protest advertised in the local mainstream media!! Wonder how long it'll stay up for!!?
In order to develop a sensible and effective drug policy it is vital to know what impact current policy is having. We not only need to highlight and establish where policy has failed but also which areas of policy have had a positive impact.
The current government is extremely resistant to such an assessment and so signing this petition is extremely important in order to attempt to get the issue put before Parliament.
Please sign and share this....it doesn't matter which side... of the argument you sit on as this is vital to ensure the UK has a robust drugs policy which is fit for purpose.

My name is Sanj Chowdhary, my condition is now all but 'invisible' to those who don't know me. 14 years ago, however, it defined who I was and what I was able to do.
I used to suffer up to 30 of these seizures every day, often suffering stronger and more prolonged attacks! Since using cannabis, and learning to manage the 'triggers', I have only suffered about 5 episodes in around 12 years. The doctors and specialists have witnessed the profound affect cannabis has had, and fo...r my neurologist what has occurred is nothing short of miraculous! I am able to drive again, I skateboard, snowboard, downhill mountain bike, even rock climb and caving; things doctors said would be impossible!......I do all the things that gave my life joy and satisfied the adrenaline junky in me,. It's just a shame that the politicians and authorities refuse to acknowledge the evidence.......The authorities wish to take my 'life' away from me by forcing me into a life of pain and suffering; something that in itself violates my human rights!
Cannabis gave me my life back and gave me a life worth living!!
Please share your story and send it to us at the Cannabis Support Network UK

Hi Guys, I am going to be making a submission to the Labour Party Policy Commission. The submission will be regarding policy which focuses on ALL substances both 'legal' and 'illegal', and one which makes a distinction between sensible use and potentially harmful misuse. I would like to get as many views together as possible before putting together the final submission so if you would like your views and opinions considered please get in contact. I am also looking for people with the relevant experience to help draft the submission so again if you fancy getting involved please drop me a line. Sanj Chowdhary xx
