I support it 100%. From what I have read, it is very effective in the management of pain in cancer patients, without the side effects of other methods. Apparently patients are also able to better control their pain without being completely drugged out like they are on morphine. Which leads to a better quality of life. Which would be awesome, for both the patients and their loved ones.
I think the fact is is "pot", that seedy drug that surfers and stoners with oily hair and pimples use is part of the reason people don't support it. If it had a different name, people would be dancing on rooftops and celebrating this miracle drug.
Watching a loved one suffer through uncontrollable cancer pain really sucks. I imagine being that patient would suck more. If this option gives you dignity and a chance to enjoy the last of your life, I say pass the reefer!

Of course I support it! I can't imagine a reason not to...
to me saying "I don't agree with the use of medicinal marijuana" is the same as saying you don't agree with medicine entirely. Just because you don't need it, doesn't mean there's not a use for it and you won't need it in the future.

Yes 100% or can be very helpful for the treatment of hyperemesis gravidarum.
Eta. I haven't done much reading into it but marijuana is used to treat hg, so figure is the thc that is helpful to reduce the nausea.

Yeah sure. As long as it was medically monitored, like all medication.
But I was giggling because it reminds me of when Dad was dying of cancer and my darling old Nana - 90 years old - was convinced that Dad would feel better on marijuana (and she was probably right). She would go sneaking up to the grandkids - AND OUR FRIENDS! :O - asking if we knew where she could get some of 'the weeds'.
That's a mother's love

I'd be thinking twice about using it while pregnant! THC collects in the fat cells, and takes quite a long time to leave the body, how could it affect a foetus?
I guess if you were THAT sick with HG, then you'd just have to weigh up the risks to the baby.

Completely for it. I know a guy with a form of epilepsy that uses it to control his seizures. It really works!
