Veteran politician Frank Field has hailed cannabis oil as a “wonder drug” – and told how he has spent thousands of pounds on a private prescription.
Speaking exclusively to the Sunday Mirror, the 77-year-old Labour stalwart became the first UK politician to reveal he was using medicinal cannabis.
He said he turned to CBD – currently at the centre of a fierce debate in Parliament – to ease “crippling” pain from a slipped disc.
