Sativex The Loop Hole in The Supply of Cannabis

The NHS price of Sativex is £125 per 10ml vial, which lasts about 10 days.

Sativex is vailable under certain conditions

# Multiple Sclerosis

# Cancer Pain

# Neuropathic Pain

 

GW pharmaceuticals profits from sativex and its partners are listed below.

GW Pharms profits for the last year £1.5 million (i wonder what next years prfits will stand at with sativex at a cost to the nhs of £5000 per patient per year)

Almirall is Spain’s largest pharmaceutical company with sales approximating €1 billion per year (sativex is licenced in spain too)

The Otsuka Group comprises 153 companies and employs approximately 36,000 people in 23 countries and regions worldwide. Otsuka and its consolidated subsidiaries earned US $9.6 billion in annual revenue in its fiscal year ended in March 2009 (sativex also licensed in canada and the usa)

Bayer HealthCare, a subsidiary of Bayer AG, is one of the world’s leading, innovative companies in the healthcare and medical products industry. The pharmaceuticals business operates under the name Bayer Schering Pharma. This business employs 38,000 people and reported 2007 sales of €10.3bn

 

That is quite a lot of billions in profit there and yes there not simply from sativex but why are the government allowing these companies to profit from a persons human right.

it's like money laundering, by washing the evil weed and turning it into sativex they can sell it back to the nhs and give it to those in need and free themselves from any criminal prosecution.

if you look at gw pharms product guide they are working on medications for other illnesses not presently under sativex.

Oncology

Metabolic Syndrome

Psychiatric Disorders

Epilepsy

Inflammation

Sativex derives from the Cannabis Plant so therefore i suppose the medical opportunities are endless.

Why is this idea important?

We want the governement to explain this –Sativex– vs–Cannabis–

As a matter of fact…

Sativex is an oromucosal (mouth) spray developed by the UK company GW Pharmaceuticals for multiple sclerosis patients, who can use it to alleviate neuropathic pain, spasticity, overactive bladder, and other symptoms. Sativex is also being prescribed to alleviate pain due to cancer and has been researched in various models of peripheral and central neuropathic pain. Sativex is distinct from all other pharmaceutically produced cannabinoids currently available because it is derived from botanical material, rather than a solely synthetic process. Sativex is a pharmaceutical product standardised in composition, formulation, and dose. Its principal active cannabinoid components are the cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The product is formulated as an oromucosal spray which is administered by spraying into the mouth. Each spray of Sativex delivers a fixed dose of 2.7mg THC and 2.5mg CBD.

Now can the government to explain to us this:

Why do you approve prescribing a medicine that is made of cannabis to people with multiple sclerosis But at the same time you send the same ill people to prison for cultivating their own plants?

Is it all about money ? how can you tell people that they can buy cannabis of the governement but if they are caught bying it elswhere or growing it you would send them to prison?

Is this not denying civil liberties to people?
