Cancer patient uses marijuana illegally, helps rid himself of disease

News Posted Feb 16 2016

Since the legalization of medical marijuana in various states began, patients of all kinds from cancer to epilepsy have seen amazing results using cannabis. Some praise the healing effects, while others are happy to curb symptoms from other treatments but what about all of the patients who have no access to legal cannabis? Some die waiting for legislation to pass, but one Cancer patient in Pennsylvania was not ready to give up after his doctors gave him 9-11 months to live. He chose to buy and use medical marijuana illegally, but his large risk became a large success. After only a few months, scans showed all the tumors lodged in his lungs had disappeared, and the tumors in his liver shrunk. 

“I am convinced I wouldn’t be here without it,” Robertson said. “The chemotherapy was extremely difficult to get through and the cannabis really made that a lot more tolerable for me.”

“If you can’t eat, you can’t heal. If you can’t sleep, you can’t heal. If you can’t digest your food properly, you can’t heal. Pharmaceutical medications are designed to shut your system down, that’s what they do, marijuana does not do that,” Molly Robertson said.
