It is now widely accepted that weed is effective in treating nausea, pain, loss of appetite, and many other side effects associated with traditional cancer treatments. What’s less accepted
is the use of pot to treat children suffering from life-threatening illnesses. In

their seriously ill kids. Some of the parents even believe that marijuana on
its own can cure cancer, and they are using it as an experimental treatment.
