Cannabis debate leaves GPs facing a prescribing conundrum

Not long ago, I was interviewed on the radio about whether I would prescribe cannabis, Dr Ellie Cannon writes. I explained that it was unlikely until we had the solid evidence base that it works, as we do with other drugs. The presenter shouted me down. After the Government’s review of cannabis for medicinal purposes, rather than wait for sensible and clear-cut guidance, it is these types of attitude that I am afraid will set the agenda.
