Last night.

Longford, County Longford.

A rally and march across Longford town to promote the legalisation of cannabis.

Kenny Tynan, who has brain tumour and recently had his cannabis oil seized, was joined by friends, family and fellow activists Vera Twomey, Gino Kenny TD, Hazel Robinson Mike Cunningham and Johnny Keenan (him off the telly!) to urge the easing of access to medicinal cannabis.

    If you’re pro life why aren’t you pro this guys life?
    If you’re pro choice why aren’t you pro this guys choice? (Also those with epilepsy and others who benefit from using medical cannabis)

    I can understand why some object to recreational weed but I struggle to think why there is such resistance against medical cannabis on prescription.

    A grumpy old men thread? Nice.

    I was watching a YouTube video earlier. Before it started John Waters appeared spouting some timed click poo. My cat ‘psycho’ normally paws the screen in a friendly playful manner but this time she left marks. New screen so.

    Anyone look at the video of Kenny Tynan in the post lads?
    Isn’t that what the thread is meant to be about?
    I didn’t go to Longford to read comments about whether cannabis is good or bad.
    The full facts are that Cannabis Oil works to save the life of Kenny Tynan.
    He has proven it. If you looked at the video BS put up you will understand this. A citizen of Republic of Ireland got medical cannabis oil in a European country. He brought it back to his home country and the revenue took it off him.
    Basically our government are saying no matter how many countries agree cannabis oil is good that’s not good enough for Ireland.
    So the only comments here should really be about whether a dying man deserves the medication that has been taken off him.

        I just want for once in a post for people to stick to the thread.

        That’s a fairly simple request.
