Why this petition matters

Started by Tara Davis

Medical Cannabis has finally given me a reasonable quality of life following a serious Car Accident 7 1/2 years ago. 
I have taken opiates since the day of the accident.

Codeine. Tramadol. Tapentadol. as well as anti convulsants Gabapentin and Pregabalin to help nerve pain. Muscle relaxants. Anti depressants. 

Then I met an amazing Dr based in York (I live in Kent) and she listened and she observed. 
she began prescribing me Medical Cannabis in the form of oils, it took a little while to find the right balance but finally we hit the right balance and FINALLY I have been able to start improving my quality of life. In the past 6 months I have started being able to do more than just basic things. Pottering around the house. 

Doing a shop still hurts. But im not reduced to tears anymore. 

I can take my 4 year old on trips and use my vape with medical cannabis leaf to bring my pain down from a 10... off the scale 10 doesnt do it justice. To a bearable 4-5. 

Sitting in a car for more than 20-30 mins is when I start squirming, however I can stop and use the vape to bring my pain back down. 

I spent years popping more and more pills. My baby girl missed out on so much. Finally she is getting her mummy who is able to do the things she deserves aged 4 1/2. 

Now we are faced with funding my oils alone. 
at £700 a month we are now facing me having to stop my oils at best reducing them significantly. That means me slipping back into that endless cycle of pain. 

why should this be allowed when Opiates are destroying people and their quality of life. Their relationships. Ending their lives.  

Medical Cannabis needs to be available at a far lower cost than it currently is. It should be an option to everybody who is in pain. 

Its available in Canada. Why can we not have it available in our pharmacies at a reasonable cost.
