Cannabis consultant held conversations with some Manx GPs

Local doctors 'struggling to find information'

A UK-based, freelance cannabis consultant says he's had conversations with several GP's on the Island about its medicinal use.

Jeff Ditchfield is a member of Norml UK, a group that calls for the recognition of rights for people to peacefully pursue cannabis activities, and he's established a Manx branch of the organisation.

Speaking on today's Perspective programme about the legalisation of cannabis for medicinal use, he said doctors are struggling to find where to get more information on the use of the drug.
