Some of you are bashing the more natural medicine that very well may work but you would think nothing of all the synthetic drugs he could be perscribed that would do absolutely nothing but cause side affects. Open your mind people!

Pot doesn't "treat" cancer, TMZ! It only masks the symptoms - if that!

Pot doesn't cause cancer, repressed emotions do.

Last 18 January I was 24 years off of pot.


So now I'm, what, 24 years and change?


I'd go back in a second -


If I was diagnosed with cancer -


That was it's good news/bad news.


The bad news is you've got cancer.


The good news is you can have Arabian-blue back.

I just read on a glaucoma website about using marijuana instead of medicine. They said a study late last year showed weed can cause your immune system to not function properly, thus causing cells to become cancerous. It's not the cure for everything Tommy.

well he will be dead soon.. take one of the most treatable cancers and think weed is going to cure it is a joke... hope people learn a lesson from him..

as much as I like it for my back pain there is no way it cures cancer.
