‘Harder to get than a gun’: Medicinal cannabis laws broken, campaigners claim
A NSW father will keep breaking the law to get black market medicinal cannabis for his sick son because he claims Australia’s newly legalised system is too onerous and expensive.
Former nurse Michael Oakley told nine.com.au medicinal cannabis oil has saved the life of his son, Ben, who suffers from Stiff Person Syndrome, a very rare neurological condition.
Ben’s disorder means the 21-year-old suffers acute full body muscle spasms so severe that each seizure can put his life in danger.
He has described the terrible seizures as like having a Taser pushed up against his spine.
