People across the UK are criminalised for consuming cannabis to treat their conditions.

Established in July 2014 with the support of Professor David Nutt and Caroline Lucas MP United Patients Alliance was founded to represent the interests of these patients and to call attention to the injustice of prosecuting individuals for treating their chronic conditions with cannabis. Some of the most vulnerable members of our society face up to fourteen years in prison for consuming a medicine that is legal across North America and Europe.

Despite the wide body of clinical evidence supporting its use, and a change in UK Drug Policy in November 2018 moving cannabis to schedule 2, the Government continues to deny patients a medication with a proven record of safety and efficacy.

We believe that no one should be criminalised for trying to be well.

Being sick can be an isolating experience, especially if your medicine is illegal and only available on the black market. United Patients Alliance is here to support patients through tough times and advocate on their behalf for safe and legal access to cannabis.
