Complainant Name:
Mr Peter Reynolds

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: The Mail on Sunday

Complaint:

Mr Peter Reynolds complained to the Press Complaints Commission that the newspaper had published an article reporting on the use of the drug Sativex which, in his view, contained inaccuracies and was misleading.

Resolution:

The complaint was resolved when the PCC negotiated the publication of the following statement in the newspaper:

In a Health article on June 19 we said the prescription drug Sativex, which is derived from cannabis, does not give patients a "high" because the dose is low and comprises a controlled form of the substance. In fact a feeling of euphoria is listed as a common side effect.
