I watched ITV news at ten night and couldn’t believe that the Home Office has taken away Billy Caldwell’s cannabis based medicine.

Of course eventually all medicines must be standardised but here is a little boy who has had his medicine individually prescribed and hasnt had a seizure for 300 days
whilst on it.. As his mother pointed out stopping any medicine abruptly is dangerous, Billy had a seizure last
night and any seizure could cause death. It can’t be a child’s health and well being that is at the heart of this decision, I fear it’s money.
