Medicinal cannabis is the only way that Lyn Cleaver can control her son Jeremy’s extreme seizures, but he has been rejected from Tasmania’s Controlled Access Scheme.

A panel of experts suggested alternate drugs that Jeremy should try before resorting to cannabis. However Ms Cleaver says that if these medicines were safe and effective, they would never have had to look to medicinal cannabis for treatment in the first place.

Brian Carlton talks to Lyn about her continuing battle to be able to legally medicate Jeremy.
