GW Pharmaceuticals - Good or Evil?

GW Pharmaceuticals have made massive headway in the last 12 months with their exclusively cannabinoid derived medicines gaining acceptance in 25 countries including the UK and US. Their share price has rocketed with a more than 10 fold increase since it's cornerstone product Sativex (an oral spray treatment reliving symptoms for MS suffers) hit the market running. Since then they have gained FDA approval of a second cannabis based drug Epidolex (an alternative treatment for a rare kind of children's epilepsy) and the companies prospects continue to look bright with a comprehensive list of treatments entering later stages of trials including a pain relief alternative for cancer patients. But a big question remains among legalisation advocates - is it right that this large organisation that has had a monopoly on cannabis production and research in the UK, is now allowed to patent it's fairly simple and easy to make products? After all, cannabis tinctures, sprays and even tablets have been consumed as medicine for as long as records have existed.

While many people within the culture may find this hard to stomach, I think the answer is yes. This is the big break we have all been pushing for, a necessary evil in the name of eventual liberation. GW's drugs are not just helping sick people, they are changing the perspectives of millions around the world. This is a bigger step forward than the decriminalization trend that has been seen across the US over the past decade (albeit someway behind the logical steps taken recently in Colarado) because it doesn't come with the stigma associated with the 'marijuana medical card'. These drugs are not simply random strains picked and dried, they are the product of selective breeding for favorable medicinal characteristics, a carefully formulated and consistent mixture that has been rigorously tested over years of trials and comes endorsed not only from the marketing company, but from academics alike. These products are proof that cannabis holds up to scientific scrutiny and possesses genuinely researched and documented medicinal benefits. These products are a game changer, and undeniable step forward and almost certainly the start of a new cannabis perspective across the globe.
