    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    I thought that was what the Dad's presence in the delivery room was for. During the process I was told more than once what a let-down I was and how everything was my fault.

    Brexit 2017

    I couldn't agree more. The democratic arm of the EU should have had a much higher profile than the bureaucratic arm. I actually think the post referendum debate has been far more informative and enlightening than the pathetic attempts before. The pathetic lacklustre overconfident campaign by Remain and the outright lies, false promises and corruption of Exit were frankly no way to debate the most important question of our lives and, more importantly the lives of our kids and grandkids.
  3. If that ever happens I just Google "Magical Trevor" and it displaces even the most stubborn Ear worm.

    Brexit 2017

    I've always voted for my MEP and the UK government has always been encouraged to take an active role in EU law making though decades of Euroseptic sneering diminished our influence.

    Female Harold Shipman ?

    But it could kick off a whole new career of ripping off concerned parents and endangering children. Andrew Wakefield has made his fortune on the back of his being struck off.
  6. Okay I listened and the fish is a Bleak...another tiny little fish not worth boasting about (though often a match winner if you like that sort of fishing).

    I don't think it is either. I believe we should be the instrument to change the EU.
  8. A Gudgeon...a tiny little coarse fish not worth boasting about. Edited to add: I didn't read the question properly. Are you suggesting I listen to Chas 'n' Dave?

    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    Recreationally I would say it is far less harmful if abused. NickNorman's vision of a wasted stoner, whilst fairly pathetic, is a lot more palatable than the alcohol induced violence and anti-social behaviour seen every weekend in every town. Therapeutically I suppose it is a matter of opinion and the effect it has on the individual. I find if I am unhappy then alcohol makes me even more miserable so it wouldn't be much use to me as an antidepressant.

    Brexit 2017

    You sum up the past 39 years of UK government in one sentence. The EU trading policies are modeled on Thatcher's neo-liberal economics. I want to stay in the EU so that when we as a country finally ditch the failed system of neo-liberal monetarism we can then use our influence to change the EU the same way.

    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    I'm afraid that is way beyond my experience or knowledge. I can only speak from experience and that is that cannabis has helped me with physical pain far more than any prescribed substance. As far as emotional pain goes the only thing I can absolutely recommend is...Speak to somebody. A GP initially who, hopefully, won't reach straight for the prescription pad and fob the patient off with happy pills before trying the less harmful alternatives.

    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    An alternative to highly addictive hard drugs (Class 'A' if not prescribed by a doctor)? In my opinion absolutely, yes. I'm not sure of the relevance of "8am" but on a weekday morning I wouldn't consider any pain relief more mind altering than Ibuprofen, Paracetamol, a cup of tea and my TENS machine.

    Cannabis oil, should it be available on prescription?

    Indeed. One has to be very wary of self-medication though. I'm not aware of any doctor who has responded to ""I'm than in pain (due to other things besides pain." with "Go and drink alcohol then." however every medical professional I have had to see over the past 5 or so years has agreed that, if it works, Cannabis is a far better choice than any of the heroin type stuff they can give me (as well as Amitriptyiline, pregabalin, duloxitine or all the other weird addictive crap I've been offered.)

    But this is probably the same or smaller proportion of "recreational" cannabis users as the "bored wasters who can't be bothered to do anything except get drunk" except there are very few therapeutic benefits attached to alcohol (although I do have the occasional therapeutic tot of Calvados to supplement the other pain relief methods).
