People across the UK are criminalised for consuming cannabis to treat their illnesses.
The United Patients Alliance was founded to represent the interests of these patients and to call attention to the injustice of prosecuting individuals for treating their chronic conditions with cannabis. Some of the most vulnerable members of our society face up to fourteen years in prison for consuming a medicine that is legal across North America and Europe.
Despite the wide body of clinical evidence supporting its use, the UK Government continues to deny patients a medication with a proven record of safety and efficacy. They need to recognise the well-established medical benefits of cannabis.
We believe that no one should be criminalised for trying to be well.
Being sick can be an isolating experience, especially if your medicine is illegal and only available on the black market. The United Patients Alliance is here to support patients through tough times and advocate on their behalf for safe and legal access to cannabis.
Please do browse our website to find out more about what we do, ways to get involved and how medicinal cannabis could help you.
The United Patients Association is working hard to support the many patients and families that desperately need medical marijuana. Why should this non-toxic planet be held back from those that need it, why should anyone be forced to feel like a criminal for wanting to support themselves or a loved one.
