MARIJUANA SPRAY APPROVED FOR MS PATIENTS

Canada yesterday become the first country to legalize a medicinal spray form of marijuana, to treat pain in the country's 25,000 multiple-sclerosis sufferers.

Health Canada said the pain of MS patients was not met by current prescription and over-the-counter medicines, so approval of the new marijuana drug was expedited.

The spray Sativex contains THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. It is to be taken every four hours in a spritz into the mouth, five times a day.
