"The idea that this can be driven off the streets and out of people's lives by the state is nothing short of deluded", Hague wrote in the Telegraph.
Calling the confiscation of the vital cannabis oil used to stop Billy's seizures by United Kingdom border officials to comply with United Kingdom drug laws as "inappropriate, ineffective and utterly out of date", Hague advocated a far-reaching review of policy regarding cannabis, saying "official intransigence is now at odds with common sense".
Javid also stated that Alfie Dingley - a six-year-old from Warwickshire with a rare form of epilepsy that causes him numerous seizures - would be granted a license immediately.
Cannabis was the most commonly used drug past year, with 6.5% of adults - around 2.1million people - aged 16 to 59 having used it, according to Home Office stats.

The Home Office said in response that "the government has no intention of reviewing the classification of cannabis under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and it will remain a Class B drug" - the middle rung on a three-point scale of illegal drugs.

"I think we all know that we need to find a different way".
Alfie's mother said she had been "overwhelmed" by the Home Secretary's announcement and voiced hope it would be easier to access to get cannabis medication in the future, saying it would be "madness" for sufferers to miss out.
"The harmful effects of cannabis are well known and there are no plans to legalise it", May's spokesman said.
"It demonstrates that the government now understand that for many people medical cannabis is a life saver". The Government is clear - we must prevent drug use in our communities and help those dependent on drugs to recover, while ensuring our drugs laws are enforced.
Cannabis is a Class B drug, but - perhaps most importantly - it is a Schedule 1 drug, meaning that it is now considered to have no therapeutic value whatsoever.
