Patients with a legal medical cannabis prescription should be treated the same as any other medical patient with a condition or disability.

We have seen that many patients are being refused entry to certain venues do to possessing their medical cannabis prescription, although this is completely unlawful. This is due to the lack of information that is shared and that many are unaware medical cannabis was legalised on the 1st November 2018.

Always try to contact the venue ahead of time to inform them and their security of your medical cannabis prescription and that you may be required to consume it as prescribed. You do not need to tell them what your condition/disability is. If you are being challenged by security or even the police in the UK, remind them of the Equality Act 2010 and cite the below sections. If you continue to have issues you should contact the venue management and make a complaint as you will be entitled to a full refund and compensation to cover costs, to and from the venue.

Check out our table of approved venues that allow the use of legally prescribed medical cannabis on their premises. (Please review the information for each venue before your visit)
