July 3, 2018

Charlotte Caldwell said: "This is fantastic news for families living with the agony and anxiety of epilepsy and a vast array of other conditions - another step towards access to medicinal cannabis.

"Billy has had his victory, now it's time for all of the other families. I will do everything that I can to help.

"I am really impressed by the swift pace of the Government, however we need to remain mindful that there is not actually much expertise in medicinal cannabis in the UK, if any.
