My heart is pounding out of my chest as we 3 blink down fat tears into Eddy’s 5th seizure tonight. He mewls weakly, floppy-limbed, white-lipped and slumps into my arms. I can still hear the echoes of the deep aching sobs he cried before bed, terrified of the seizures he knew he would have tonight. The heart-wrenching grief that he would inevitably be woken by pain and suffocation, that he might not wake up tomorrow. If you heard those sobs, you would never hear another child squeal without a deathly reminder of our haunting maybes.
…why the hell are the politicians still dragging their feet on this!

Labour have to show the same leadership for working class cannabis as they have on middle class drugs like Party Pills.
