Immediately allow Medical Cannabis to be used

Thousands upon thousands of otherwise law-abiding citizens use cannabis for medical reasons.

I suffer from Ulcerative Colitis which began in my early thirties (over a decade ago) Doctors prescribed heavy doses of steroids + other drugs which affected me adversely both physically and mentally. I could not work – I bled all day long from the colon and had to go to the toilet 15 times a day or more – and I'm not talking peeing. 

It was recommended I have my colon removed. 

I was absolutely opposed to this idea. Take away my colon and it can never be put back.

I tried all sorts of alternative therapies which worked to varying degrees. However the one which works most successfully is cannabis. By maintaining a regular dose ie use of the drug several times a week, I do not bleed and I do not go to the toilet 15 times a day. Effectively I live a normal life, work, pay tax, contribute to society and enjoy life.

The doctor who has dealt with me for the last ten years or more says "do not change what I am doing because it is working."

I do not wish to break the law.

I absolutely 100% feel with all my heart that it is criminal to deny anyone medical treatment which brings them relief. 

Medical cannabis is real – it not just a load of people wanting to get stoned. 

I want the law changed – I want personal cultivation for medical users to be allowed. 

I also want cannabis for the general population legalised – and, if this isn't able to happen, then at minimum made class C.

Thanks – please respond by ensuring this issue is appropriately dealt with to ensure civil liberties and freedom for the population.
