What would you do to help your ill child? Would you give her cannabis oil? Louise Bostock, 30, gave the tincture to her three-year-old daughter Jayla. The child suffers from epileptic fits. Mrs Bostock thought the cannabis oil would help. It did.

The Sun reports:

When Louise told nurses [about the oil], she was prevented from removing Jayla from Birmingham Children’s Hospital for five days while they did tests. She and site manager fiancé Charisma Agbonlahor… were told police would be called if they did not comply.

Tests seem not unfair. But what was being tested? Says Mrs Bostock:

“I wasn’t even allowed to take her outside for fresh air… It was heart-breaking.”

Birmingham City Council is given the right to reply:

“When concerns are raised by health professionals, Birmingham Children’s Services has a responsibility to investigate.”

The BBC has more news on cannabis oil:

A County Tyrone man who has a terminal brain tumour says he wants to be allowed to use cannabis oil that he believes will prolong his life. Kieran McCrory, 37, from Omagh, has asked the health minister for help in highlighting his case. It is illegal in the UK to use cannabis for medicinal purposes as it is a class B drug.

Ridiculous.
