Cannabis is my lifeline

I read with interest the article on Thomas Yates (EADT, March 18) and was very relieved that the jury unanimously found him not guilty.

I am also an MS sufferer, and await a Crown Court appearance for possess of cannabis, the only medication that helps this and many other awful afflictions. I hope for the same verdict.

When will we be allowed to use our medication without fear of prosecution? It all seems like a waste of time and money, not to mention the trauma and stress inflicted on disabled people.
