The courage and fortitude of parents who have chosen cannabis compounds to treat their children facing life-threatening illness have raised eyebrows. Some live in terror that their government will take their child away, since medical marijuana is only legal in some states. However, there are numerous cases demonstrating the benefits of clinical cannabis, which happen to threaten a very profitable healthcare industry that relies on conventional drugs, as well as political agendas.



The cannabinoid acids in cannabis have been found to have anti-proliferative, anti-neoplastic, anti-inflammatory, anti-epileptic, anti-ischemic, anti-diabetic, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-spasmodic, antibiotic, anti-anxiety, and anti-depressant functions. The anti-neoplastic action of cannabis

I would definitely consider it, a lot of the drugs the FDA approves are taken off of the market because they have dangerous side effects and marijuana does not have any dangerous side effects.

I didn't read all of that. If my kid was facing a life- threatening illness absolutely would consider/try it. I would want to save my kid. Idgaf what the law says at that time.

Absolutely. Someone brought this topic up last year. I would so much rather my child be given a more natural option than be pumped full of chemicals.

If I had no other options absolutely. Or if my hippie dr. Said I should try it. He told me he wished he could just give all pregnant women pot till their morning sickness was over.

Yes I would do anything that would help them, there's no dangers and it's better than most if the other medicines out there that have horrible, dangerous side effects

I definitely would. If they have a life threatening illness, what would that harm really be?

absolutely! It's been proven to devour cancer cells, not only in kids but adults. As it becomes more and more accepted we'll probably see it more readily available as treatment for a lot of different illnesses.

So even if their illness has a low rate of death, but the medication can make them infertile, have low stature, and other side effects, but the cannabis compound had no ill effects, you still wouldn't pick the more natural, less harmful medication?

There are other medications I would have to try first. If they were not working then I would consider it.

Long story short, marijuana has been clinically shown to help inflammatory diseases, epilepsy, cancer, muscle and motor illnesses/diseases, nausea associated with various illnesses, diseases and their associated treatments and a ton of other health issues. It has even helped terminal cancer patients go into remission. It's the super drug the government has been dying to make.
