Questions About Cannabis
Sunday, July 7th, 2019 - 36 minutes
Over 3000 respondents took part in the consultation into the medicinal use of the drug with 95% supporting the introduction of cultivation and processing of cannabis on the Island, subject to suitable regulation. Meanwhile, 97% of those who responded to a consultation into the industrial use of the crop, supported the creation of a regulatory framework within which hemp could be produced on the Isle of Man. We hear from the director of public health, Dr Henrietta Ewart and self-styled cannabis consultant Jeff Ditchfield, asking the questions about legalising the use of cannabis for medicinal and industrial purposes.
