We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

I'm not sure this should be anyone's business, the story sucks no matter what you think about marijuana.

One of Oregon's youngest medical marijuana patients, who suffers from leukemia, stirs controversy.

November 30, 2012

Seven-year-old Mykayla Comstock was diagnosed with leukemia last year. To deal with the debilitating side-effects of chemotherapy, Mykayla has turned to another medication: Cannabis oil.

"It helps me sleep," Mykayla told the Oregonian ,"The chemotherapy makes you feel like you want to stay up all night long." Cannabis has also been widely credited with reducing pain, nausea and vomiting in chemotherapy patients, benefits Mykayla’s mother Erin Purchase says are impossible to ignore. "She's like she was before," Purchase told the Oregonian. "She's a normal kid." A medical marijuana patient herself, Purchase grows her family’s medicine and administers cannabis oil pills to Mykayla daily. She credits the plant with her daughter’s recovery.

According to ABC News , Erin Purchase enrolled Mykayla in Oregon’s medical marijuana program within three days of her leukemia diagnosis last July. Initially, doctors were concerned Mykayla did not respond well after treatment and suggested she might need a bone marrow transplant. Mykayla started taking the cannabis oil pills, and Purchase says that by early August, Mykayla was in remission and the transplant was no longer necessary. "I don't think it's just a coincidence," Purchase said. "I credit it with helping -- at least helping -- her ridding the cancer from her body."

What controversy can there be?

Exactly, a made up controversy. Would she be better off withe prescription meds? I doubt it.

Silly business, this is no controversy.
