Sapphire Medical Clinic, located in Stirling, is the first medical cannabis clinic authorized by Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS) to provide safe access to medical cannabis for patients in Scotland. Medical cannabis was legalized in the UK in November 2018, allowing doctors to prescribe it in certain situations. The Scottish government said it had no influence on overprescribing and it was the decision of specialist clinicians to prescribe the drug. The law change moved cannabis from schedule 1 under the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 – meaning it had no therapeutic value – to schedule 2.
