    Across the pond, a new breed of legal cannabis companies have emerged and they are creating literally hundreds of strains specifically for treating particular illnesses.

    This growth in professionalism has sparked inspiration for UK growers who have been looking to bring medical entrepreneurship to the UK.

    A 28 year old cannabis grower told the Metro that he has been using the internet to research the benefits of various strains:

    "I just went on the internet and researched what all the big American firms are doing with medical marijuana, they have done all the research behind it, so I can trust they are right about this. One website said which weed is best for women on their periods, so I got some of that in too. ‘Also some of the legal cannabis shops and companies tweet about which cannabis is good for what illnesses, so I just follow their advice, it is not rocket science it is just selling weed."

    There is no denying that there we are making small but steady progress towards cannabis being legalised across the world.

    We have seen Germany, Australia, Spain and even Ireland all make inroads to legalising cannabis. Unfortunately, despite the growing appetite for a legal UK cannabis market, the end of prohibition does not seem close. With Brexit looming, it does not appear that legalising cannabis high on the agenda for the current conservative government.

    Should we be concerned that patients are receiving unqualified medical advice or are UK dealers doing the community a service and meeting an unmet need?

    MPs rounded on a Tory Justice Minister today, accusing him of ignoring evidence that cannabisshould be legalised.

    Labour and Green MPs slammed Justice Minister Mike Penning, as he gave a withering dismissal to calls for the drug to be legalised - even for medicinal purposes.

    And Lib Dem Health spokesman Norman Lamb spoke of the "hipocrisy" of ministers criminalising thousands of young people when, he claimed, "probably 50% of the government have tried cannabis."

    MPs from all parties attended a Westminster Hall debate on legalising the drug , prompted by a petition signed by 220,000 people - the third most popular on Parliament's website.

    And Mt Penning made his comments despite a bombshell private report finding that legalising cannabis could cut the deficit by £600million .

    Responding to the petition Mr Penning said: "I'm not going to stand here and say we're going to legalise cannabis. I'm not going to say that from a moral position, from a personal position or from a government position."
