It was mostly thanks to our minister of health who suddenly decided that medicinal cannabis will hitherto be available at regular pharmacies. You know, those shops that currently sell you every other drug but cannabis. Where this will leave our current supplier, located in another city, is not clear. Out of business, is one likely possibility.
Anyway, this minister has, in one fell swoop, made the hubby's life much simpler as he has been making a three hour trip every month to collect C.'s cannabis. (There are once monthly deliveries made to our city but for the last few months our supply has run out before the delivery date.)
The second good news item involves J.K. Rowling's anti-institutionalization organization, Lumos. I've written about it here and later.
I'm always wishing that our country would win some if its attention. After all, we're cursed with a widespread respect and support for the institutionalization of children with disabilities from both the powers that be and the masses. One network of such facilities grabs a lion's share of available funds to further its activities.
Well, it seems that several months ago the director of Lumos, Georgette Mulheir visited my country to address members of several organizations that assist people with cognitive disabilities. I'm sorry I missed her but will try to learn what the upshot of that event was. Was this influential network mentioned? What goals were set for change in my country?
I've got a transcript of her talk and will share excerpts in my next post.
