Medicinal cannabis was confiscated from a woman as she tried to bring the drug into the UK illegally for her daughter, who has severe epilepsy. Emma Appleby and Teagan, nine, were stopped at Southend Airport after they flew from Amsterdam. Mrs Appleby bought £4,000 of the THC oil capsules in the Netherlands after being refused a prescription in the UK. But it was seized by the Border Force before the family, from Aylesham, Kent, was released from the airport. It was illegal to bring the drug into the UK without a prescription, which doctors have been able to issue legally since 2018. Doctors in the UK have refused to prescribe Teagan THC, a psychoactive compound found in cannabis. Kent girl Teagan Appleby’s medicinal cannabis seized at airport
