So if they are doing it, why aren’t we examining it more?  “This is something that’s been around for thousands of years and has been illegal for just over a hundred years.  “We could be missing something very beneficial.”  Bill was diagnosed in 2018 and has endured nine rounds of chemo. He is desperate to avoid more and says: “I refuse to believe I’m out of options.”  He was motivated to try cannabis by the experience of 14-year-old cancer patient Deryn Blackwell, who had a miraculous recovery after his mother gave him cannabis oil for pain relief.  He said: “I find Deryn’s story deeply inspiring. To come back from the brink of death like that is truly wonderful.”  Bill goes to visit Jeff Ditchfield, who has been growing cannabis, processing it for medicinal purposes and giving it to people who need it for the past 15 years.  Meeting Jeff – who has been arrested more than 20 times – in his garden workshop, Bill laughs: “This may look like an episode of Breaking Bad but Jeff is no Walter White, his drugs come free.”  Before Bill tries the oil, Jeff warns him taking the concoction is an offence under the Misuse of Drugs Act, saying: “I have to ask you, are you aware that you’re going to be breaking the law?”  Bill replies: “It’s for medicinal purposes, so let’s see what happens.”  Rubbing the mixture under his tongue, he says it tastes “like pesto, very planty”. Bill then tries vaping the drug and is soon laughing uncontrollably and telling the camera: “This is really unfair.”  Speaking through fits of giggles, he adds: “I cannot compose a sentence, I just can’t do it.” He says he felt so nauseous afterwards he feared he might throw up over the director.  Bill says the problem with the drug being illegal is no one knows the correct dose t
