Yesterday, Barry Brown submitted his nomination paperwork to stand as the CISTA (newly rebranded as the Citizens Independent Social Thought Alliance) MP candidate for West Tyrone.
He is the only candidate in the upcoming General Election running with a platform to legalise and regulate cannabis. He doesn’t expect to win, but he is confident that his constituency is firmly behind medical access to cannabis, especially following the widely reported sale of cannabis oil to Charlotte Caldwell for her son Billy.
“The Sinn Fein Candidate who will become my MP with at least a 10,000 majority was pictured with Billy and Charlotte Caldwell receiving the first cannabis medication from the local pharmacy recently. So, our future MP in this constituency is behind the Medical Access. I would safely say all candidates in my constituency would support Medical access.”
