Cannabis helped Marie Fleming ‘in lots of ways that prescribed drugs weren’t able to’


Cannabis helped Marie Fleming in ways that prescribed pain medication could not, her long-term partner revealed this morning.
Tom Curran told TV3′s Ireland AM that the illegal drug had a “very positive effect” on Marie as she battled with Multiple Sclerosis.
“Rather than buying it on the street, I bought seeds on the internet and I grew it for Marie and the results were incredible,” he explained.
“The pain relief, the spasms and also to be perfectly honest, the lifting of her mood so it helped her in lots of ways that the pain control drugs just weren’t able to do.”
He said that Marie smoked the cannabis, rather than bake it.
“You could see within two minutes of her taking it, her limbs stopped shaking, the pain relief, you could see the anxiousness in her was gone because the pain was dissipating. It was remarkable. It became part of our routine, if that’s the way to put it, yeah.”
Curran revealed the details during an interview with Sinéad Desmond and Anton Savage as part of a campaign for a new drug Frampya to be made freely available to those with MS.
The drug can cost up to €500 per month and is not part of the General Medical Scheme so sufferers would have to meet the cost themselves.
