The partner of right-to-die campaigner Marie Fleming says he is backing moves to legalise cannabis for MS sufferers.
Marie, who was from Lifford, took cannabis in a medicinal form to east her pain.
Her partner Tom said he is delighted that the State will legalise the medicinal cannabis next month.
Tom said “It is a long time coming. I have spoken in the past of the effect that cannabis had on Marie.
“It really worked with the pain relief and spasms and the mood-lifting capabilities were very good,” he said.
The medicinal cannabis will be distributed in a spray form and taken orally.
