It often occurs that sick people who suffer from pain badly try to somehow ease their suffering, so they use drugs based on cannabis.
However, the problem with Ukrainian legislation is that such drugs are out of law today, and therefore their acquisition, storage, and use are treated as a criminal offense.
Ukraine was shocked by the story of the popular TV presenter, Yanina Sokolova, who admitted that in order to fight cancer she had to travel abroad to buy necessary medicines based on cannabis, secretly bring them to Ukraine and use them here, easing frequent pain attacks. And few people realize that according to the norms of Ukrainian legislation, these actions are treated as a crime and have the corresponding consequences.
Other cases are when doctors who see their patients struggling with severe ailments secretly suggest medicines based on cannabis to help them. But such suggestions also entail criminal liability under Ukrainian law.
Our organization is not going to put up with the situation when people who fight diseases to live on, are considered as criminals in the opinion of the law enforcement system.
Therefore, we provide free legal assistance to persons charged with using or storing narcotic drugs, if they are:
- Patients who take these medicines to relieve pain;
- Doctors who advise such medications to their patients for good reason.
We are ready to defend your right to fight the disease to live on, even if the law turns on you!
