The highly regarded Professor Alex Stevens, discusses his latest BMJ editorial, focussed on Cannabis legislation in the UK.In this short video Alex explores what has happened since the Home Office moved Cannabis from Schedule 1 to Schedule 2.He talks about the concerns that the NHS have about it's use and the reality that only very few, specific conditions will fall into a category where the drug may be prescribed. Alex questions whether this is the correct conclusion and whether adult individuals who believe they derive benefits, should have greater capacity to make their own decisions.Alex concludes with his personal view that Cannabis would be better served by being rescheduled to Schedule 4 (part 2) which would still put constraints on supply and prescribed use, but permit people to be in possession (ie grow their own) without fear of prosecution.
