Jon spent 5 years as Political Director for United Patients Alliance, a patient-led, volunteer organisation who provide support for medical cannabis patients whilst campaigning for legal access in the UK, lead researcher for the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis and is a Co-Founder and Director of Cannabis Patient Advocacy and Support Services – CPASS
Jon has been consuming cannabis to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety all his adult life. After studying psychology and working as a psychiatric nurse, he built a career in IT Business Relationship Management. Resulting from legal issues with growing his own therapeutic cannabis he decided it was time to stand up and fight for patients right to their medicine, drawing on those experiences and knowledge to lobby for legal access to cannabis therapeutics in the UK.
To relax, Jon loves to dance!
