UK medical cannabis delivery to reach patients during COVID-19

The UK government has published emergency legislation to facilitate access to controlled drugs from local pharmacies and without a prescription during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since social distancing regulations have been implemented, many people who are prescribed medical cannabis for chronic pain have been unable to attend specialist clinics to renew their prescriptions. Instead, some have registered with private companies that are now able to offer online consultations and medical cannabis deliveries by courier.
