Mother of two epileptic children begs for medical cannabis to save both their lives

Cayman in hospital

A mum from the North of England has pleaded with the National Health Service to give her 11 year old medicinal cannabis after he was placed on an end of life care plan.  Angela Norton from Macclesfield has 2 children with drug resistant epilepsy.  She says the controversial medication could be their only hope of living.  Figures out earlier this year from the NHS show that no-one was recorded as being prescribed medicinal cannabis by GPs in the whole of England last year despite the drugs being legalised in November 2018.  Watch my BBC report on North West Tonight.
