Medical Marijuana for Children: Would Their Doctors Condemn Them to an Agonizing Cancer Death?

In Oregon, 2,201 cancer patients use legal marijuana; 52 were children as young as 4-years old.

(PORTLAND, OR) - The Oregonian headlines the article, 'A Seven-Year Old Uses Medical Marijuana' November 25, 2012. Whether they did this for sensationalistic headlines is not clear but probably so.

This story was picked up by the Washington Post, CNN and MSNBC. On CNN, Dr. Sanjay Gupta made the usual fool of himself by condemning this solution and saying that "Marinol" which is the pure cannabis medicine, THC, would be better which is totally false. THC causes anxiety attacks, paranoia and hallucinations.

If he doesn't know this, he shouldn't talk about cannabis at all.

Noelle Crombie, Oregonian reporter, printed many of her usual errors. She states that Oregon's medical marijuana law requires no monitoring. Oregon officially recognizes cannabis/marijuana as medicine. No monitoring except for narcotic addiction is required in Oregon.

She implies that other drugs can treat pain and nausea more effectively. About 40,000 legal marijuana patients indicated this is also false. The 7-year old patient is getting along fine when her chemotherapy. Without marijuana she would soon sicken and die. By the way, the US government owns the patent on marijuana for cancer therapy!

Ms. Crombie's article stated that Mykalya, the seven-year old patient, was using medicine which was 58% THC. This is way above this usual medicine but indicates the safety of this high-grade cannabis treatment.

Special thanks to The Oregonian

Ms. Crombie writes that the American medical establishment does not concur about marijuana as medicine.

In Oregon, about 3,500 doctors have signed applications for its use. In the US, probably as many as 50 million people use it occasionally with no serious adverse effects. She has found several doctors who say, "marijuana is in appropriate" but have no other suggestions about a better, safer drug for this girl's problems.

She does write that Dr. Stephan Sallan at Harvard Medical School, did research in the 1970's and found that THC in marijuana prevents chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting.

Ms. Crombie did point out that in Oregon, 2,201 cancer patients were using legal marijuana and 52 were children as young as 4-years old. They were also using it for other medical reasons.

I believe I was the marijuana doctor for the youngest patient, who was 13-months old at the time. She was given cannabis tea by her Russian parents for a genetic disorder from which she ultimately died.

I was on Lars Larson's radio talk show many years ago and told him this. He telephoned the Oregon Medical Board and told them that I was, "making a marijuana addict of a 13-month old child". The collective board nearly fainted, but collectively gave birth to a cow. I hope they can read this Oregonian article.

Marijuana is the Best Drug for 50 + Diseases including certain cancers!

This young mother knows information that is light years beyond what she should have to know. Cannabis essential oils have been proven over and over to kill cancer cells and stop cancer from spreading throughout the body. Cbd alone has cured breast cancer at the pacific coast medical center in San Francisco. CBD alone... Thc also kills cancer cells.. Marinol is a synthetic single cannabanoid and it not well tolerated by patients. Cbd helps thc kill cancer cells and has a antitumeric property that stops the growth of tumors and it is all in the research...Just gotta want to know the TRUTH.. This little girl will survive and survive well... the chemo will not ravage her, the cannabis will keep her strong. Look up what your cb1 and cb2 receptors are doing...You'll never be able to listen to stupid dr.s again..
