Right now my dad is fighting prostate cancer, and my cousin’s grandma is fighting cancer in multiple parts of her body. Cancer is a horrible thing. I wish more people considered using medical marijuana to help treat their cancer. Fortunately the two relatives I previously named were open to the idea and are using medical marijuana to compliment their other treatments. Medical marijuana has been used for a long time to help treat cancer. In fact, it was recently discovered that a woman who lived 2,500 years ago was using medical marijuana to treat her breast cancer. Per the Huffington Post:

Did a dying Siberian maiden who lived 2,500 years ago self-medicate with marijuana? New research by Russian scientists shows that’s a likely possibility.

To cope with the pain she must have been experiencing, the princess could have resorted to cannibis — a container of the stuff having been found alongside the mummy in her burial chamber.

As archaeologist Natalya Polosmak wrote in a recent issue of the journal Science First Hand: “It is likely that for this sick woman, the regular inhalation of cannabis smoke was a necessity.”

I always get upset when I hear medical marijuana opponents try to use the delay tactic of ‘we need to know more about medical marijuana before we can support it.’ Medical marijuana has been around a lot longer than those idiots, proven by the story above. Marijuana is medicine. If someone can use medical marijuana to help alleviate/treat their conditions, they should be allowed to do so.
