Coroner Says Sativex Is Responsible For Death Of Patient

A marijuana plant based experimental medicine known as Sativex, is responsible for the death of Rene Anderson, a diabetic pensioner, a coroner has ruled in the UK. The drug was prescribed to Mrs. Anderson to ease the numbness and pain in her limbs due to diabetes.

// The medicine is reported to have resulted disturbed behavior, and the patient was later taken to hospital in an intoxicated and confused state. Here her condition continued to deteriorate, resulting in her death due to kidney failure five months later at the Northern General Hospital. The coroner admitted that the reason for the continued deterioration of Mrs. Anderson’s health even after she was taken off the drug was unknown.

Sativex is manufactured by GW Pharmaceuticals to relieve severe pain. The company sources insist that over 2,000 people have been administered with the drug during its development, and there were no deaths as a result of this. The project is funded by the Diabetes UK, and it is licensed in Canada. The family of Mrs. Anderson insists upon a ban on the further trials of the drug, stating that the patient has been used as a guinea pig for an unsafe drug.
