UK officials have decided to no longer permit 12-year-old Billy Caldwell to use cannabis oil for his life-threatening seizures. Northern Ireland’s Department of Health just instructed a general practitioner to discontinue prescribing medical cannabis to a young boy with a severe form of epilepsy. The doctor, Dr. Brendan O’Hare, had been prescribing a medical cannabis product to the boy, named Billy Caldwell, after the boy’s mother secured a prescription from the National Health Service (NHS) in 2017. With that prescription, 12-year-old Caldwell became the first person in the UK to legally use medical cannabis. Cannabis is currently listed as a Class B controlled drug in the UK, meaning that those caught possessing cannabis can serve up to five years in prison, receive an unlimited fine, or both.
