A change in the law means prescriptions for medicinal cannabis in Guernsey are given the go ahead.
The States of Guernsey has approved a change in the law that means for the first time, consultants can now prescribe herbal cannabis for medicinal use.
The Committee for Health and Social Care say this is "an important step in modernising the Island’s legislation in regard to cannabis, and builds on some of the pioneering work led by Guernsey in recent years".
The States say it is likely to only be used in a "very small number of cases".
