In 4 videos Cannabis News Network will give you an update on the current situation. We reveal what our rights are. We show how governments are struggling to grand us those rights, and how international drug laws are forcing countries to set up a government controlled system. You’ll see why patients are the one and only victims of such a system, because they are not allowing to grow their own medicine, or worst, are being criminalized.

In episode 3 of this series, we show you how this system is set up and why it is failing its patients.
