Since 2016, the GCS team has focused its energy alongside that of cannabis social movements to drive grassroots patient initiatives, using the latest science and information on cannabis as our foundations. Our team has supported the growth of informed cannabis debate across the UK, promoting cannabis education, harm reduction strategies and drug law reform. Translating these lessons from our research and community work, we connect cannabis consumers to ethical businesses and promote transparency to encourage constructive debate around cannabis being used as a medicine and support businesses that have patient advocacy at the core of their reasoning. Cannabis business needs to adapt a forward thinking macro vision, by creating leaders who can find trust between society and industry, and utlise our network to do this.
All too often, the voices of the people who are living their own cannabis fight are ignored with little compassion. We want to provide every person who needs cannabis with safe and efficient access, with the support of Government, MP's, Police and Councils. Cannabis law is some 20 years behind what the science is saying about what cannabis can be used for and GCS aims are to deliver more opportunities for debate around safer access and socially-led incentives such as home grown cannabis cultivation.
