“Humanitarian grounds” and cannabis in EU law, 2062/2010/(ANK)JF

Mr M was prescribed to take palliative (medicine containing cannabis) in the Netherlands. He wants to visit his family in Ireland, but the use of the palliative is considered as a criminal offence there. Ireland is not a part of the respective Schengen acquis that could help Mr M.

The European Ombudsman declares to be “deeply touched”, and addresses the Irish Human Rights Commission and the Irish Ombudsman in saying that Mr M should be authorized to visit Ireland with his palliative on “humanitarian grounds”.
