Marijuana can ease cancer woes

February 18, 2013

As a retired American, I would like to add my opinion about the legalization of marijuana. For the last four years, I have been battling a very bad form of cancer and so far, I have been holding my own with a lot of effort and patience and the help from the great nurses and doctors at West Penn Oncology. There are times when eating is a very difficult thing and sleeping is not to be had and worry is just as maddening.

As a user when I was a young man, I remember the times when marijuana was a great joy. I’d like to add one of the effects that comes from marijuana use is that you will eat before you sleep. It can be a great help for those of us who are living with cancer. It will help us to eat, to sleep and help ease our minds from the fear that comes from having cancer.

I wish everyone would consider this opinion from someone who has pretty much been through the mill and made it back.
