PP2 Press Release


MEDIA ADVISORY
Paul Flynn MP’s cross party support builds ahead of second reading of Elizabeth Brice Bill for the legalisation of cannabis for medical use
Supporters include Caroline Lucas MP, Crispin Blunt MP, Frank Field MP & Layla Moran MP
Friday 23 February 2018
3pm GMT
Parliament Square, London

On Friday 23 February 2018, the United Patients Alliance (UPA) will hold a protest in front of the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, as Paul Flynn MP and UPA patron introduce the second reading of the Elizabeth Brice Bill for the legalization of cannabis for medicinal purposes.

The Bill has growing cross party support from MP’s including Caroline Lucas (Green and UPA Patron), Layla Moran (Lib Dem and UPA Patron), Tonia Antoniazzi (Lab and UPA Patron), Frank Field (Lab), Mary Glindon (Lab), Jeff Smith (Lab), Kelvin Hopkins (Lab), Crispin Blunt (Con), Michael Fabricant (Con), Martyn Day (SNP), Ronnie Cowan (SNP), Alastair Carmichael (Lib Dem)

Last year, on 10 October 2017, as Paul Flynn introduced the first reading of the Bill, the UPA held a ‘cannabis tea party’ outside the HoP to stimulate critical debate on the need to allow access to the drug for patients suffering chronic pain conditions. At 3pm this Friday after the second reading of the Bill, Paul Flynn will join the UPA outside the HoP to reveal  the outcome. If the Bill is passed it will proceed to committee stage and into law within just a few weeks or months

Available for interview and photo opportunity | Friday 23 February 2018, 3pm

Who:                    Paul Flynn, Labour MP for Newport West and UPA patron
Jon Liebling, UPA Political Director. Consumes cannabis to relieve symptoms of depression and anxiety
Alex Fraser, UPA Co-Founder. Crohn’s patient who consumes cannabis to relieve his symptoms
Clark French, UPA Co-Founder. Multiple Sclerosis patient who consumes cannabis to relieve his symptoms
Faye Jones, UPA Director. Rheumatoid Arthritis patient who consumes cannabis to relieve her symptoms
Abby Moore, UPA Director. Endometriosis Patient who consumes cannabis to relieve her symptoms
+ patient members of UPA and members of the public

When:                  Friday 23 February 2018, 3pm

Where:                Parliament Square
                              Westminster
London SW1P 3JX

Why:                    Cannabis is currently classified as a Schedule 1 drug meaning it is considered to have a high potential for abuse and no recognizable medical application by the Home Office. It is currently illegal in the UK. This illegal status means those who need the drug to manage chronic pain and other symptoms are denied access to it. Thousands of patients in the UK are being forced to break the law by consuming illegal cannabis or growing their own from seeds. The United Patients Alliance (UPA), a patient advocacy group, believes patients in the UK should not be criminalised for using cannabis, and was founded to challenge the injustice of prosecuting individuals who use cannabis to help alleviate their symptoms.

                              Paul Flynn, Labour MP for Newport West, has long been a voice in the call to amend the law to legalise cannabis for medicinal purposes. Most recently in his speech to the Commons in July 2017 he called directly for civil disobedience, calling on people who use cannabis for medicinal purposes to challenge the law and consume cannabis at Parliament.

Notes to Editors

About United Patients Alliance (UPA)
The United Patients Alliance (UPA) was founded to call attention to the injustice of prosecuting individuals for treating their chronic conditions with cannabis. Some of the most vulnerable members of  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, the UK Government continues to deny patients a medication with a proven record of safety and efficacy. They need to recognise the well-established medical benefits of cannabis. 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. The United Patients Alliance is here to support patients through tough times and advocate on their behalf for safe and legal access to cannabis.

About Clark French
By consuming cannabis to treat MS instead of pharmaceuticals Clark saves the NHS over £30,000 a year. Clark was diagnosed with MS in 2010 in the final year of his degree at Reading University. Clark has chronic pain, spasms, fatigue, migraines, tremors and finds it hard to stand up. Cannabis improves all of these symptoms. 

"Cannabis helps me to have a much better quality of life than I get on the medications my doctor can prescribe me. I think it is ridiculous that I can legally take opioids and chemotherapy based treatments which could kill me, but am criminalised for consuming cannabis despite the support of my Neurologist, GP, MS nurse and wider health care team. The UK government needs to act on the evidence which shows that cannabis has medicinal value and change the law immediately".

About Alex Fraser
Alex Fraser, 26, has had Crohn’s disease since he was 19 and uses cannabis to relieve his symptoms. Cannabis stimulates his appetite, reduces his pain dramatically and helps with sleep. It also helps Alex to keep his weight up, and without it he fears he may waste away and become scarily underweight, as many Crohn’s patients do.

“I have tried not consuming cannabis, and my symptoms always increase dramatically, my pain is worsened and I often can’t sleep or eat without severe discomfort. I also have taken prescription meds, and have tried not taking those, and the difference is minimal. I can safely say that cannabis is the most effective treatment for my Crohn’s disease that I’ve tried. I hope that, with the help of the UPA I can have safe, legal access to it as soon as possible”.

About Jon Liebling
Jon Liebling has suffered with varying degrees of stress migraines, back pain, anxiety and depression for most of his adult life, which he has effectively self-managed with cannabis. 

When left alone by the law, and in every other aspect I have been and am a productive, tax paying, law abiding citizen, father, son and brother who has never done anything to harm anyone, and don't accept why I, or the countless others who benefit, have to suffer more as a result of this uninvited restriction on liberty. From my perspective, the law itself is a crime. Prescription medicine has made me worse. The law has threatened me, hurt me and taken my medicine away. Cannabis has done nothing but help”.

PRESS RELEASE - UPA Northern Ireland Medical Cannabis Summit 2018



PRESS RELEASE - United Patients Alliance – Northern Irish Medical Cannabis Summit


NO EMBARGO

Event: United Patients Alliance – Northern Irish Medical Cannabis Summit
Date: 27th January 2018, 10:00am – 5:00pm
Venue: Riddel Hall, Queens University, Stranmillis Road, Belfast.
Guests: 150+

Major announcements to be made this week;

  • GreenLight Medicines agreed to sponsor the event. They are Irelands only cannabis based pharmaceutical firm, have been building an extraction plant and laboratory on the border with Co. Tyrone and Co. Donegal.
  • Dr. David Gibson, Northern Irelands only cannabinoid researcher working out of Ulster University will attend and present his recent research conducted right at home.
Conference speaker list to be found below in editorial

Quote from Keynote Speaker: Professor Michael Barnes, MD FRCP, Neuropharmacology,
“The Northern Irish Medical Cannabis Summit is really important to raise awareness of the benefits of medical cannabis and continue our efforts to get this invaluable product legal for thousands of people currently having to live with pain and other real problems in their daily lives.”

Quotes from Patients:
Neil Paine, 46, Coleraine, British Army Veteran 14 years, PTSD and Chronic Pain
“I believe that members of organizations concerned with the care of veterans could gain a much needed insight into this long demonized medicine. The Barnes Report already shows evidence to support the medicinal and therapeutic value of cannabis as treatment for PTSD among other conditions.”

Gareth Tuff, 36, East Belfast, MS Patient using cannabis
(seeking to stand in local council elections next year with the Ulster Unionist Party)
“A governments primary role is to keep its citizens safe. If the medicine is safe and effective and there is general consensus amongst the medical fraternity then there is no question; the law will change. As a Multiple Sclerosis patient I am forced (as there is no other option) to take some very dangerous pharmaceutical infusion medications. The danger is death. Debate not hate, that is what is needed.”

Deborah Hempkin, 55, Newry, Mother of a Chrons Patient using cannabis
“From a mother who was against Cannabis her entire life to watch her son heal within 3 days was hard to believe. I watched my son struggle with Crohns Disease for 14years and I have also watched him heal within 3 days from taking Cannabis. Events like these are of the utmost importance to deliver the truth behind Cannabis and help to educate people.”

Quotes from UPA Directors:
Alex Fraser, UPA Director
“Conferences like this are essential to change the image of cannabis in the mind of the public, to remove the stigma and to educate people about how Cannabis could help them or someone they love"

Jon Liebling, UPA Political Director
"We have been seeing a significant shift around the world over the last few years and indeed in the UK over the last 12 months. UPA Northern Ireland showed at the protest outside Stormont in October that there are things that all political paritnes can agree upon and cannabis as medicine is one. The time is perfect for such a well organised, well attended summit here in Belfast.

Editorial:
United Patients Alliance Northern Ireland are proud to announce the Northern Ireland Medical Cannabis Summit, the regions leading forum for evidence based discussion on cannabis based medicines. To be held in the rather fitting backdrop of Riddel Hall, Queens University.
This conference is a gathering of people at the forefront of cannabis research, policy innovation, legal knowledge and cannabis product and brand development.

CLEAR's PR Threatening Cannabis Patients - AGAIN



Patients meet with Lynne Featherstone - Feb 2015

How ironic is this picture from a few years ago now. The very first time that I met with CLEAR - Cannabis Law Reform and Peter Reynolds. I learned after this single experience that he was not someone with whom I was going to get along......or trust. It should be noted that in 2017, the entire CLEAR Board resigned and left!

Unfortunately I couldn't post about this directly on Facebook as I had been banned for 3 days for bullying him! So I wrote it in blog form......and he can't stop me tweeting it! :)


Recent Litigation History


After his recent £36k loss from his unsuccessful long term liable litigation against Chris Bovey of NORML UKyou might have thought he would take a rest from threatening more vexatious law suits. 



Alas, no. Peter seems to want to focus his time, effort and resources into attacking more cannabis patients and other reform groups again, instead of actually doing anything constructive about changing the law




You can read all about these from:
1:Sarah McCulloch
2: The Dorset Eye
3: Petey Pays Chris Bovey (Which include more legal threats to a UPA patient/admin)

Are these "vexatious lawsuits" from Peter, actually what the CLEAR subscription is paying for? 


Peter Reports UPA to Facebook - For nothing!

Over the last couple of weeks, Peter Reynolds has been reporting members of United Patients Alliance but particularly myself to Facebook for various things.

Shortly after updating our CBD Product information and recommended suppliers pages (Check them out!), Facebook acted on a complaint (pending investigation) about "Copyright Infringement" for a photo apparently belonging to CLEAR Cannabis Law Reform and reported by Peter Reynolds.

Unfortunately, Facebook's policy appears to be to remove anything that someone complains about first and ask questions later! 
This fabricated complaint is being actively investigated by Facebook on our request....watch this space....



Peter Turns to Twitter

As he had me blocked on Facebook, I did ask Peter,via Twitter, to which photo the complaint was referring, as all photos and logos were approved by the companies on the page? But if there was something we hadn't noticed, then a simple request would suffice. Of course, there is nothing. It's a complete fabrication.

Neither his first, nor second response was helpful:

https://twitter.com/TweeterReynolds/status/942880343140466689


A Happy New Year - From CLEAR!

So - Whilst minding our own business as usual, it seems he had infiltrated and was spying and taking screenshots (see - documentary evidence, in the email) in our private patient forum (does he have no scruples at all? - Spying on a PRIVATE PATIENT forum!) where something else he had said to another patient was under discussion, I and our Founder, Clark French received this threat in an email from Peter, who is described by Cannabis Trades Association Chair, Mike Harlington as "nothing but an adviser". Mike was cc'd. I have not heard whether he supports Peter's threats or not as yet.
You can read an alternative point of view on CTAUK and Peter's "involvement" here: Cannabis Trade Association Scam!




I don't like this sort of "secretive" communication and wanted the conversation out in the open, I posted the text on my own personal timeline on Facebook. 
The post was reported a few moments later for "Bullying" by Peter and I have been banned from posting or using messenger for 3 days.






UPDATED 3rd Jan
Response Received from Mike Harlington of Cannabis Trades Association

As Mike had been copied into Peter's communication even though he apparently has nothing to do with the organisation and only acts as an advisor, and given Peter had now changed his story from the "Copyright" issue being about CLEAR and now it was about CTAUK - I was keen to get some clafirication of their positions in all of this:


As you can see - He chose to ignore that and attempt to discredit individuals (myself) and patients that they had attacked - note how Tom from Canabidol is now copied in too...They seem really keen to keep bringing UPAs appointed trustee Professor Mike Barnes up too - Haven't mentioned him once! Weird!





UPDATED 4th Jan - Peter Claims Stock Photo and Boris's Bus as his own - sort of?

So first off, apparently this is the photo that is "owned" by CLEAR or CTAUK (he can't seem to make up his mind) - But since it is a free stock photo that has been used by CBD companies and articles for years - seems a bit rich to suddenly claim it as your own and try to sue others for using it - Peter - That's NOT how the internet works......



But not only that - he goes on to make a claim that Boris's bus, was indeed HIS idea too - Sorry Peter, but you will have to take that up with Boris - I think you will find they did it before you did! (You're not related to the current President of the US are you?)



And finally he wants to try to blame United Patients Alliance for some comments someone from 'The Community' made on one of HIS blog entries. Please note that 'The Community' is not a UPA account or forum.  I do not know who they are. The internet doesn't work like this either!




Besides a number of threats of legal action Peter has made against me personally and Clark, he has also threatened other UPA Patients and Directors.
Some might think that this is some sort of entertaining game but the patients that he abuses and threatens would not agree and whilst I have done my level best to ignore it, now that UPA and our patients are being actively targeted - enough is enough.  



All of this happened to our founder and MS patient, Clark French, along with a few others (Read Sarah's blog above too!) a number of years ago which had a disastrous effect on his mental health. Being threatened with and then being taken to court has a huge impact on a person already suffering from a chronic illness and of course, this now happening again (with NO provocation) is dragging it all up and increasing stress levels all over again. 

Peter, and the organisations that he is involved with, must be shown up for what they really are. They do NOT care about patients or consumers or even their own members, they do not care about cannabis or the future of the industry, they do not care about the truth and they do not care about YOU!

Patients and consumers alike need to be informed and protected and we have legal access to cannabis therapeutics for patients in the UK to advance.
Not only are they bringing disrepute into the whole future of cannabis, they are also getting in the way of effective change!

Cannatech - London October 2017

Cannatech - London October 2017


Hey Upeeps - Time for an update on Cannatech - Please Keep the information limited to ADMIN for the time being - will be writing an update for wader sharing in due course - this is just for this group and hopefully will interest and excite you!

Lousy acoustics, crap location for parking and our stand was a post!
I'd just put all the stuff I was carrying down and 3 strangers approached to start asking questions about United Patients Alliance and it carried on like that all day. Food was excellent - Kosher was a popular option, of course.

The free food and bar in the evening left a slightly bitter taste - profit and entertainment before patients?? We basically were the Patient voice in this conference - Glad we were there - we need to be - lots of good people - lots of sharks!

Abby will need to update on her connections - anyone up for taking UPA to South Africa with her?

Vital Hids

Best speaker - 19/20 yr old Dutch Cronhs Patient (with a new CBD business) - He shared his story for the first time in his life. If that's his first - good speaker. He's got a great presentation on Cannabis and Cronhs - he wants to meet up and see one of our events - maybe copy UPA for or for promotion in Holland?

Tikun Olam

Met with Tikun Olam - They had read everything on our website - everything - They said they have an affinity and empathy for what we are doing as they started out many years ago as a bunch of patients wanting to drive more research and get more effective products to patients.
They took a bunch of risks is investing in Patient Data - they started with surveys that led to better ones and ultimately to collecting data from All their patients and began to design "human trials - acceptable academic levels of control and cohort size (20 patients - 3 months data, then another, and another) - When All these companies finally realised that for approving any other medicine - a scientific  double blind study will always be the best - but for cannabis - it is so more personal and so more complex that ONLY their data gave medical professionals the information they needed to get more effective products to patients more quickly - They are now the more respected and most needed cannabis organisation in Isreal -  everyone needs what they have produced for patient care!

They would like to share pretty much everything they can "commercially" with UPA - We are the ONLY organisation in the UK they are really interested in helping (selling product - excepted)  - because they are focused on patients needs and patients care - they have a London office now - we shall get an invite soon - they might be able to provide some of their trial data and are keen to help us make our website information as good as the best in the world (in their opinion)

In addition - they happen to produce their own range of CBD products they would quite like to launch in the UK

Medipen!

The very first approach we got - two rather large, smart and a little pushy chaps, Jordan Owen (matey, chatty) and Sam Asante (focused, serious) - quite a double act actually - They want one or two or a few? of us to their offices and lab and spend half a day or more checking then out in whatever way we wish - "open book" visit.
They talked about some of the mistakes they have made and why they have invested £1.5m in research and innovation. They showed some comms with the MHRA - and a few other little gems casting doubt on some other people and organisations.
They are either really cool and have been completely misjudged - OR - they are worse than the worst!
Steve Moore and Gavin are going to do a bit of digging there - I think we should accept their hospitality and go check em out? - Who wants to come?

Saving Sophie/Cannakids

www.savingsophie.org
www.cannakids.org
CEO and Founder Tracey Ryan is happy to share everything they have as we see fit - lots of research and good info - also has live medical advice from qualified US nurses who cover paediatrics too - she was lovely - her daughter was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 8 - her mum tried oil in addition to her chemo. She's now in remission. Tracey wants to share with the world.


Besides those and at Cannatech we also had offers of assistance from:

Material assistance (money) from:

Medipen
FCM Global - Columbian Hemp/CBD grower
Zev Barnett - mavenhemp.com - THC Free products (I have some to test??)
HempIre - Did have a UK +THC license - innovating - wants to help us help make change happen in the UK - Just had license revoked with no explanation
Harmony - French based CBD Company looking for new partners.
There were one or two others who said they would be in touch to give us some cash - won't hold my breath - but you never know?

Data/advice/marketing from:

T.H.Consulting & Genetic Developments - Israel
Prohibition Partners - all their "Cannabis around the world data is ours to use - they might like to collaborate on creating more together - www.prohibitionpartners.com
Sam Blacklock - www.texerepublishing.com - publishing/marketing help and advice
Rudi Morgan - Australia based Social Media Marketing - will give free support
Dr Gratziela Lazarov - www.naturesgiftcbd.com - A qualified medical doctor from US - wants to help in many ways - she would like to throw us a fundraiser, share her info/research/data - provide qualified advice/opinion - helping engage with doctors in the UK - looking to set up a local company to help distribute her CBD products - the chap who is helping her do that wants to help us too.

The conference itself, whilst good for UPA was rather too heavy on business and light on investors - the city folk are getting interested but this didn't catch them right - Steve and Gavin have some ideas to make an investor event for UPA rather better - WIP

I'll be working through that list over the next few weeks to see if any of them deliver :)
Let me know if 1: You wanna get involved 2: Any questions about anything.

Jon
