Cannabis plants still illegal despite man's argument he was using weed for health reasons

In a twist of fate, a man who claims he started growing weed to alleviate pain from two injuries instead of resorting to drug dealers has been sentenced for production and possession of cannabis.

James Edwards, 35, was recently sentenced in Sheffield Magistrates’ Court after pleading guilty to the two counts, notes the South Yorkshire Police.

Edwards received a four-week community order and a four-week curfew from 6 pm to 6 am, as well as was ordered to pay £85 ($147) in costs and a £90 ($155) victim surcharge. He also must wear an electronic tag, according to The Star.

The court was told Edwards used cannabis for two conditions: a dislocated right knee he suffered while a youngster and a stab wound to his left arm that later required surgery to reconnect the tendons, The Star reports.

Edwards tried painkillers, but they did little to help reduce the shooting pains he gets in his left arm, Kathryn Lill, defending, told the court. He had discussed the efficacy of the pills with his doctor, but felt “cannabis is more effective for his pain relief,” Lill is quoted as saying.

“A growing body of clinical research and a history of anecdotal evidence support the use of cannabis for the relief of some types of chronic pain, including neuropathic pain,” according to an article in Practical Pain Management. And two years ago, scientists from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre and McGill University reported pinpointing the effective dose of CBD for safe pain relief in chronic pain sufferers.

The sentence earlier this month follows a raid of Edwards’ home in August 2019, in which police found four cannabis plants and a suspected fifth plant (it was not viable), a growing tent, a fan and a timer.

Saying that he has learned his lesson, Lill reportedly told the court that Edwards began using weed to help ease his pain and began growing cannabis for his personal use so he could avoid having to associate with drug-dealers.

Supply or production of cannabis in the U.K. can result in a maximum fine of as long as 14 years in prison, an unlimited fine or both.
