    Hi Dvd,

    Search "Sativex" for recent posts on the subject.

    It has not been trialed in people w/ MND, so no reports. It is referenced in ALS Untangled research, but it is NOT the same as cannabis.

    Sativex has been granted a Marketing Authorisation to treat MS (spasticity) Perhaps M's neuro will prescribe it for him or perhaps not!
