I just saw this article and while I know the source isn't the best out there, given they're quoting other people here I think that can slide, but I guess this kind of stuff is another part at play here, there isn't a lot of solid answers for many illness' and people hold a lot of strong views about what works and what doesn't on areas where research isn't conclusive, and it's hard to avoid possible overcaution when dealing with other peoples lives.

Quote:
Alfie's mother Hannah Deacon called the legislation a 'catastrophic failure' and has even heard of a patient's doctor saying he will 'be sacked if he writes a prescription'.

A professor of neurological rehabilitation has called the situation 'appalling' and blames 'overcautious guidelines' for preventing NHS doctors prescribing the now-legal medication.
or to get down to the less emotive but more logical causes:
Quote:
Medicinal cannabis is currently unlicensed so doctors can prescribe it only if a patient has a need that can't be met by licensed medicines.

Under the new rule, GPs are not allowed to prescribe cannabis-derived medicines. It has to be a specialist consultant, for example in neurology or paediatrics.
