This risk of criminalisation for our health choices must stop!
This social discrimination for making this autonomous health choice must stop!
Patient autonomy, participation and choice must be implemented and respected.
Natural herbal cannabis should not be the last resort, but available as a first option.
Thanks to globally available anecdotal and medical research papers about the benefits, harms and risks of cannabis, people are far more educated about their own health issues than ever before and are realising there are ways other than the pharmaceutical protocol.
Some recent cases have already been shown that prescribed cannabis derived products have caused intolerable side effects for some patients that are generally not caused by natural herbal cannabis, so the patients’ choice should be the patients’ choice!
Therefore, MCRC propose WE should have THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE what WE put into OUR bodies. This decision should be no one else’s decision and should remain the sole right of each individual person to autonomously decide for themselves how they manage their own health, well-being and happiness. In a free and democratic society, personal health choices should not be dictated upon pain of criminalisation, unemployment, eviction and discrimination.
