A UK resident and mother of a 25 year old daughter suffering from Lenox Gastaut Syndrome had to sell her home to procure medications. Lenox Gastaut syndrome keeps the sufferer in a wheelchair because of constant epileptic attacks.

She had started giving her daughter purified cannabis oil, which she claims has improved the quality of her daughter’s life to a great extent. She said that the oil helped keep her off the wheelchair and also imroved her IQ.

She had spent over 3000 pounds before she had no other option but to sell her house. She had only one month’s medication for her daughter before she was forced to take this step.

Even though the sale and prescription of medical cannabis has been legalised last December in the UK for drug resistant epilepsy, there have been no prescriptions for the same being made till date. the lack of sales and no doctor available to prescribe them directly, over 1000 private prescriptions have been made by parents all over UK to help their children suffering from severe forms of epilepsy.

A number of protests against the high prices of this medication have been held. The parents have to pay over 4000 pounds per month to get the right medication. Some suffering families held a vigil outside the Department of Health and Social care headquarters and signed a petition to improve the prices for the medication.
