Carly Barton claims that cannabis is the only thing that relieves her chronic pain, so she’s growing her own and has told the police. After suffering a stroke at the age of 24, Carly developed the neurological condition fibromyalgia, meaning she lives in constant pain. Her suffering became so bad, that at one point she was taking morphine every two hours, with little effect. Carly’s life changed forever the moment she tried cannabis, but despite changes in the law, it’s still difficult to get an NHS prescription. Carly joins us today as she hopes to make it easier for sufferers like herself to get access to medical cannabis.
