Brain cancer gets the munchies from pot and eats itself!

    While looking at the "News in Pictures" thread, I got curious about one of the images and checked out info related to it.

    I find that very interesting. How funny that something that is soo taboo could help save lives.

    One a side note.. I've been getting migraines since I was about 9. So about 17 years now. I've been given every Rx in the world for them. About every six months I get immune to it. The only thing I have ever found to work every time, is pot. And how do I tell my doctor that? And what sucks is now I can't do that anymore becuase of the industry I work in, if you get busted once you are out forever. Stupid random testing.

    smallgirl- can't you get a RX for the pot? I had a friend that was given pot in capsule form to fight off the after affects of chemo. Didn't make him high, just helped with his appetite and since he had an RX the pee tests at work were not a problem.

    I'm not too sure about that. I don't have cancer or anything. Just chronic migraines. It just sounds silly to tell my doctor that pot is the only thing that gets rid of them on the spot you know.

    NY has no medical marijuana laws, so you can't get a prescription. But if you want to bring it up to your doctor to discuss alternatives, go right ahead. Your doctor won't turn you in, and it may spark some valuable dialogue.

    Dakota....far out that you went on with this story after seeing the picture. I totally love doing the "News in Picture" thread.

    As someone who totally finds marijuana to be an excellent medication for multiple maladies, and losing both parents to types of brain tumors/cancer, I found this information wonderful. Marijuana=Medication.

    In the words of Mr. Peter Tosh.....Legalize it - don't criticize it
    Legalize it and i will advertise it
    :proud2:
