Following many months of tireless efforts, Warwickshire county resident Hannah Deacon managed to obtain a license from the Home Office on June 19 to allow her to obtain and treat her son, Alfie Dingley, with cannabis oil. Young Alfie suffers from Dravet syndrome, a severe form of epilepsy and experiences regular daily seizures without the oil.

But Deacon was able to pass through customs at London City Airport Tuesday evening after returning from a trip to Amsterdam where she had obtained medicinal cannabis oil for her son.

“Today, for the first time ever in this country, we have brought back THC oil through the airport legally,” said Deacon after coming through customs. “Which is amazing. It is very, very important for him to have a normal, happy life, so it’s a momentous occasion for us, his whole family, and for him, most importantly.”

Deacon had secured and brought back a supply of thirty milliliters of oil from the Netherlands, enough to last Alfie for up to five months.

Alfie’s GP, who is to approve the medication for prescription, is also charged with storing and dispensing the oil. When the supply of medicine is exhausted, Deacon will likely have to repeat the entire process unless cannabis oil is rescheduled in the meantime.
