Name: kennedy
Condition: Glaucoma
Friday 07 Jul 2006

I was 25yrs old when I was diagnosed with this condition. It was suggested
by my GP, after I had an unpleasant reaction to the drops and oral
medication, that cannabis was reputed to have a stabilising effect. I
tried cannabis and 18yrs later the pressure has remained constant and is
within safe limits.

Recently I failed a random drugs test, even after disclosure to my
employer, I was suspended pending dismissal. The law needs to take into
consideration that there are hard working and honest people out there who
use cannabis to give themselves quality of life. The criminal law and
employment laws need to acknowledge that there is a need based on health
issues.
