As we have repeatedly said, medicinal cannabis is being used by many groups as a smoke screen for full decriminalisation of marijuana and other harmful drugs.

Former union boss Helen Kelly has spoken out about her “political motives” for applying for medicinal cannabis.

Kelly’s oncologist, Dr Anthony Falkov, who applied and later withdrew an application to the Ministry of Health for a non-pharmaceutical grade cannabis product, told the ministry he believed Kelly was making a “political point in trying to seek medicinal cannabis”.

Kelly stands by that and says the comment isn’t a criticism of her as she discussed her motives with Falkov.

“He’s a very good person and it was unfortunate he got dragged into it.”

“People said, why are you doing this when you’re getting what you need – I said, well there’s people who aren’t getting what they need.”
