Later this month members of Medicinal Cannabis Reform Scotland are planning to meet with senior officers from Police Scotland, representatives of public health minist Joe Fitzpatrick, and the NHS in Holyrood. The campaigners are looking to open up the discussion for decriminalising marijuana in Scotland and are seeking support in the government.

Bernadette McCreadie, who suffers from multiple immune diseases and central nervous system diseases and uses cannabis for pain relief, is one of the representatives of Medical Cannabis Reform Scotland that are. According to her, the campaigners are looking to decriminalise home-growing, or allowing cannabis social clubs to operate in Scotland. 

Currently, Scottish Drug policy is controlled by the British government, but McCreadie believes that there could be a way around that. 

Scotland, along with the rest of the UK  will allow for cannabis-based medicines to be prescribe in the fall after it was announced by UK home Secretary Sajid Javid’s that the government would relax certain cannabis laws.
