In another despicable medical cartel action, an autistic boy was punished for having taken cannabis oil, which could have helped him overcome his disabilities that are possibly caused by state required vaccinations, in the first place.
Billy Caldwell, an autistic boy with epilepsy, has been placed “under hospital arrest” because Northern Ireland will not allow him to be treated with cannabis oil at home, the 12-year-old’s mother has said.
Billy suffered from up to 100 seizures a day before starting the cannabis oil treatment. He returned to Northern Ireland this week after spending three weeks at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital to treat his life-threatening condition.
The Northern Ireland Health Department on Thursday granted a temporary license for cannabis oil – which Billy relies to control his epileptic seizures – but on the sole condition he is administered the drug in a Belfast hospital.
Billy lives in Co Tyrone, which is a two-hour journey away from the Belfast. As the 12-year-old needs a dose of the drug twice a day, it means he has to endure a four-hour round trip every day.
His mother, Charlotte Caldwell, said: “Billy has effectively been placed under hospital arrest. The Department of Health in Northern Ireland has refused to release Billy’s meds, which have to stay at or near a hospital in Belfast, for the duration of Billy’s treatment, which is basically for the rest of his life – or until somebody sees sense.
“This is completely at odds with the view of the Chelsea and Westminster hospital, which said he could go home, and the Home Office, which recommended he did,” she said, according to The Guardian.
Billy had not suffered any seizures for almost a year after starting the cannabis oil treatment. However he ran out of supplies in June and the Home Office banned his GP from proscribing more. His mother travelled to Canada to stock up on the plant-based drug, but on arrival at Heathrow airport in June, the supply was confiscated from her.
The case, along with several other high-profile cases of patients depending on the drug to treat their conditions, sparked a massive debate on the legalization of cannabis for medical purposes.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid responded to the outcry by calling for a review of the scheduling of the drug.
Earlier last week, Billy’s mother Charlotte had supplies of Tilray obtained in Canada confiscated from her by airport officials at Heathrow, after the Home Office earlier prevented Billy’s doctor from prescribing it to him.
While on Tilray, Billy went over 250 days without a seizure, however within hours of being given his last dose on Tuesday, Billy’s condition worsened and he was hospitalized. His medicine, which prevented such seizures, sat in the Home Office building just a few miles away.
A national outcry and charges of hypocrisy leveled at Tory MPs, who have profited from the current regime, resulted in an embarrassed Home Office granting Billy a temporary license, albeit only for 20 days access to Tilray. The substance is banned in the UK because it contains tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive constituent of cannabis.
Another mother of an epileptic child was told by the Home Office in March “not to seek publicity” for her license application, after she was given assurances by the Prime Minister of a “speedy decision” which could allow her son access to medical cannabis on compassionate grounds.
However, since those assurances were given almost three months ago, no movement has been made on granting the license to Alfie.
Medical fascism must be condemned and supplanted with concrete action that makes the pharma-chemical cartel irrelevant.
Protestation simply doesn’t work. Direct physical action is required.
