Dail To Vote On Medicinal Cannabis Next Week
The Dail is to vote next week on allowing cannabis for medical use in Ireland.
A bill calling to prescribe medicinal cannabis for chronic pain, epilepsy, cancer and MS has dividing opinion during a debate in the house this evening.
8 year old Ava Twomey from Cork is currently in the Netherlands with her mother Vera, as they cannot access medicinal cannabis oil in Ireland.

The bill’s author, Gino Kenny and Fine Gael’s Kate O’Connell, a pharmacist, clashed over the law’s power
