I just checked the number of signatures, on the online petition to allow Ms Helen Kelly (NZ cancer patient) to use legal cannabis oil; NOT Govt. certified ‘Sativex’.
So far, about 3700 have signed it, it needs at least 1300 more to reach their stated target.
It was interesting to read the minister responsible said ‘More Information required’ even though it was signed off by a Specialist oncologist. He then went on to ‘recommend she apply for SATIVEX’.. as if that somehow a completely different drug. Ms Kelly pointed out that Sativex is not a ‘one size fits all drug’ there are many cannabinoids & many varieties & concoctions & levels of THC & CBD. The one she applied for has ‘a lower hallucinogenic effect’ 🙂
so.. if your a kiwi & reading this OR it even seems to allow others overseas to add a signture too. ‘jump to it please people’
