Estelle Taute refers Section 21 info request to Dr Shyamli Munbodh

On Sep 22 I contacted Estelle from Dep Health & MCC regarding section 21 to find out the process regarding the application for medical dagga via the Section 21 application. Here is the discussion in chronological order.

Medical Dagga by CDA Peter Ucko

Hi. Good day

Recently Peter Ucko mentioned in a SABC interview that it is possible to make an application through the mcc.

“Medical dagga is available. You make an application to the MCC
(Medicines Control Council) through your doctor. There is a
process so it might not be easy.” – Peter Ucko, Central Drug
Authority

I would like to know if it is possible for you to put me in contact with the mcc or provide me with the documentation required by my gp to make this process as easy as possible?

Thank you for your time.

Sir,
I’m afraid I have no knowledge of the “Central Drug Authority”.
The national medicines regulatory authority is the Medicines Control Council.
Please contact dr Shyamli Munbodh on 012 395 8241 regarding your request.
Yours faithfully

Thank you for your reply,It’s very obviously the CDA lied on National Television. Could you please invest some time into watching this SABC Newsroom youtube upload of the interview with Peter Ucko of the CDA. Where he specifically say that it’s possible to apply for cannabis via your organisation the MCC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMdySIlsdJQ

If you cannot afford to watch the whole clip here is a link to 9 min 20 secs in where the CDA representative lies to South Africa on the name of your organisation. http://youtu.be/gMdySIlsdJQ?t=9m20s

Also recently I was made aware that one can apply for medical cannabis but the application will not be approved as advised by Dr Shyamli Munbodh .  http://dagga.za.net/2014/10/07/section-21-moot-applications-will-not-be-authorised-for-dagga/ (Podcast)

Could the dagga culture but also more specifically the illegal dagga  criminal/patients of South Africa please get some clarity on why cannabis/dagga is not approved. When all the science in the world cannot even justify the law?

Please, all we ask for is full disclosure on Section 21 & Dagga. What is the justification not to approve application. To 4 million people it sure seems like a conspiracy to protect the interests of legal preferred medicines already available.

Can we appeal the dismissed application?

There is no scientific data to give justification for a dismissal. We could rebut your every claim with even more recent and even more valid credible scientific sources.

Please assist the dagga patients from within your capacity at Dep of Health. If not possible at least contact the relevant department also on your own behalf to have the matter be settled in general. Please do you part for those suffering needing this medication. Please apply some Batho Pele in this regard.Thank you again.

Regards
