Bracknell admitted in her blog that she has been used ‘High THC cannabis oil’ every day since leaving the hospital two years ago.
Discussing why she decided to risk her freedom by using medical cannabis, Bracknell wrote:
“When you think you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, one’s relationship with risk becomes considerably less cautious.
“Making the oil at home from the plant is as easy as baking a cake. I have been using it as a vital component of healing. Stopping in recent months for the trial.
“I do not believe I would be here without it.’
Bracknell represents everything that is great about Britain: an unwillingness to die, suffering in silence, while our Government refuses to offer its citizens the basic right of choice in healthcare.
The brave mother faces up to five years in prison for admitting her use. Five years in prison just for refusing to die.
The Home Office recently set out an outline of their plan for the process of legalising medical cannabis, but the guiding legalisation through bureaucracy and red-tape is leaving thousands of desperate patients in medical limbo.
By the time the Government finally allows its citizens to use a safer alternative to opioid-based medication and chemotherapy, many of these patients could already have died, or suffered untold anguish.
Bracknell finished by pleading with the Conservative Government to change the law to help those in need:
“I beg the Government to be brave in decisions around legislating medicinal cannabis. To legalise it in ALL its forms for medical use.”
