First Legal Clinical Trials of Cannabis

Patients in Britain's first clinical trial of cannabis will take the drug as an oral tablet.

It is hoped that the trial, conducted by The Royal Pharmaceutical Society, and involving 900 patients over a three-year period, will begin in July, subject to approval by the Medicines Control Agency. One hundred patients are being selected for the early stages.

Most patients will be MS sufferers but there will also be people with neuralgia, glaucoma and post-operative pain. The dosage will be large enough to relieve pain but not enough to make them "high".

If the drug is shown to ease symptoms without side-effects, doctors could be prescribing it to some of the country's 85,000 MS sufferers within five years.
