Another example of common sense being defeated by outdated law, and unfortunately its decisions like this which make the vast majority of ex pats breathe a sigh of relief being here 8)
(and explain to the Mum when Billy dies "the law must be upheld no matter the cost") I truly despair.[url]]][url][/url]

When we discovered social media and half the population set about becoming internet warriors and trolls I reckon.

What you are buying in Holland and Barratt and other outlets in the UK is not Cannabis OIl but CBD - cannabidiol . It has a very low dose of the THC (which makes you high) - the legal limit is 0.3%.  Anything higher than that is Cannabis Oil and is not legal in the UK, and it is that which is known as medical cannabis (I don't know about Spain).

The mother has had the child's medication returned, you either have laws are you don't, simple. Regarding the Peado's, this is the tip of the iceberg, apart from the scum jailed, each and every CARE WORKER who pimped these kids out should be given a life sentence, they knew exactly what was going on.

I'm  thinking of moving back to the rock, at least you have a breeze. The weather here is killing me, 31C without a breeze on my balcony today, and its just getting hotter, 2 mouths without hardly a drop of rain, its like living in a desert.
