Dad secretly gives Weed to son, who had a inoperable brain tumor. Now tumor is gone
Daily Mail – A desperate father whose son was suffering from a life-threatening brain tumour has revealed he gave him cannabis oil to ease his pain. And he has now apparently made a full recovery. Cash Hyde, known as Cashy, was a perfectly healthy baby when he was born in June 2008 but became sick shortly before his second birthday. At first he was misdiagnosed with glandular fever before his parents Mike and Kalli, from Missoula in Montana, were given the devastating news he had a serious brain tumour. The little boy had to have arduous chemotherapy treatment to reduce the growth, which had drastic side effects including seizures and a blood infection. His distraught parents were repeatedly told he was likely to succumb to the illness because the condition was so bad. After one bout of high-dose chemotherapy, Cash was so weak he could not lift his head and was too sick to eat any solid food for 40 days. It was at this point that Mr Hyde decided to take action and go down the route of medical marijuana to try to help his young son. Cash’s doctors refused to even discuss the option but his father went and sought authorisation elsewhere and then secretly administered it through his son’s feeding tube. Mr Hyde said: ‘He hadn’t eaten a thing in 40 days – and, it was really incredible to watch him take a bite of a piece of cheese. It shows that he wants to live’. He credits the cannabis oil with helping his son get through the chemo, and say Cash has now been declared cancer free by doctors.
No, lets not legalize this medicine. Lets not save babies and help those that can't help themselves because they have an inoperable brain disease. No let's crack down on this bullshit hippie lettuce. Lets keep depriving sick people of easy medical cures. Somebody Pack It.
PS-Cash is gonna be a player when he grows up. Telling all the little Susie's out there about how he was getting high when everyone else was in diapers. Cash will be playing chess while everyone else in his grade is playing checkers.
