More and more Danes self-medicate with pot

The lack of laws allowing for the legal medicinal use of cannabis is turning some residents into reluctant criminals who purchase and use cannabis to self medicate. Marijuana is currently only approved for use by multiple sclerosis and terminal cancer patients in Denmark, so those suffering from other ailments who say that they are helped by cannabis are forced to grow it themselves or buy it illegally. Both can result in prosecution. Sufferers say that while many places are moving forward on the medical marijuana front, it has been more than a decade since the subject was seriously debated by parliament. – Information
