Boy heads home as authorities grant emergency permission for epilepsy medication.

The 12-year-old boy with epilepsy whose condition sparked a national conversation on the UK’s drugs policy is heading home to County Tyrone, where he will be legally treated with a cannabis-based medicine.

After public outrage over the confiscation of Billy Caldwell’s medicine at Heathrow airport, the home secretary, Sajid Javid, granted a licence for cannabis oil to be administered to the boy at home.

Following uncertainty over whether the Northern Irish authorities would follow the Home Office’s lead, it was announced on Thursday that the region’s Department of Health had issued an emergency licence so he could continue to be treated at home after the family’s return to Castlederg from London.
