Should a parent have the right to give medical marijuana to a sick toddler?

Here is a video of little Cash Hyde, a two year old who was diagnosed with a stage 4 brain tumor, the tumor was forcing his little eyeball out of its socket. His doctors didn't think he would live to see his third birthday but what the doctors didn't know was that the toddlers dad, as a last resort had began giving the child medical marijuana in the form of cannabis oil.

The doctors said the childs recovery was nothing short of miraculous, the father said it was a "godsend". The video has photos of the toddlers third birthday where he is wearing a cap that says, "cancer fears ME!", he is now 100% cancer free. Very touching story.

WOW! Excellent story! Thank you SO much for sharing this. How awesome was this documentary!

I've been convinced for years now that the information was and is something that the big pharmas already realize about Mj and it's positive medicinal uses... This just deepened my suspicions.

Had that childs medical team of "professionals" found out that the father was giving his child hemp oil behind their backs, they would have had that child stripped from his fathers arms and put into "protective" custody. He'd perhaps even be dead today.

Once Mj is actually legalized for use and prescribed to John and Joan Q. Public, those very same big pharmas are going to make sure that they have their greedy, grubby hands DEEP DOWN AND DIGGING into those proverbial kilos, all for the potential of profits.. Mark my words...

How many more people have to die while congress drags it's toes and gets lead by it's nose??

I swear, sometimes I feel like just going ahead and setting up a "grow closet" of my own. No lie.

The marijuana certainly did not cure him or put him into remission. That was the chemo and radiation. However,it easily may have and probably did lessen his suffering through it all and by lessening the suffering allowed him to get through treatment.

If you want it legalized, vote for Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party)or Jill Stein (Green Party). Both Obama and Romney are in the pockets of Big Pharma

Don't smoke, you may end up the most decorated Olympian ever, play professional sports or worse end up Pres. The big majority of our medicines come from plants, plants that were put here on earth for us (Genesis: Man is entitled to all seed bearing plant). The union between the FSA, Pharm companies and politicians is probably the dirtiest union in existence today. I trust none of them. Actually I do trust them-I trust they'll lie to us and rob us for their greedy agendas. The medical benefits are well known,(glaucoma, cancer, aids, High blood pressure, etc.) but it is also a benefit for certain personality disorders such as those with anger issues. Moderation and common sense, like with anything else but the real problem are the imbeciles that take Uncle Sam's word as gospel. Join your local chapter of NORML and lets end this wrong!

i see that the little "judgement" icons have been placed on my post about the testicular cancer. i posted that in a way to make light of what i consider a very serious situation.

i have to admit, i'm always impressed with the level of expertise and knowledge i find in the topix forum. many of you in pulaski/somerset area are obviously in the top 1% of the human intelligence quotient scale.

your scope of knowledge is unbounded and infinitely deeper than the poor, mentally challenged researchers with mere PHD's and piddling certificates and awars in their field of study that is being supported with grants from silly universities after much frivolous considerations amongst other applicants.

i must say i'm so impressed i can barely breath while basking in the glow of your posts.

i think the mentality is the same as the mentality of the people that still argue that smoking tobacco doesn't cause lung cancer. for years and years i kept hearing people deny. i stopped, many others didn't. many are dead now, or toting oxygen bottles around with them. i'm neither.

smoking may NOT be the exact cause, but it has been documented time and again that it is a major contributor.

and now, the data is in about the pot connection with testicular cancer and IQ loss, and there is still denial all around.

the data isn't saying that 100% of the people that smoke are going to suffer these consequences, but why do YOU think you're one of the LUCKY ones that it WON'T?

its the same thing about driving irrationally - yes you MAY get by with it for many many years, however, it ONLY TAKES ONE TIME to end or change your life or another's life forever.

please accept my apologies for giving a D*** about you, it's obvious many of you don't

Here's the problem "old dawg" the studies you link and preach as truth are not accurate or complete. The one on testicular cancer is laced with the following terminology.

"May be a risk"
"Although we speculate"
"Could have increased risks"
"Scientists are still somewhat baffled"
"We do not know what marijuana triggers"
"increased pot use wasn't necessarily linked with increased risk"

This study is saying that frequent marijuana smokers are at a much lower risk of getting testicular cancer than those who only smoke occasionally. So they are saying that if you are going to smoke pot, then smoke it a lot.

Now the study about marijuana smoking lowering IQ is completely deceptive. The study says that it lowers your IQ by as much as 8 points but what they don't tell you is that IQ tests can vary by as much as 10 points depending on the type of test and by whom it is given. This studay also is laced with words like "possibly", "maybe", "could be", "some scientists believe", etc. These studies only reflect the agenda of the ones paying for the study to be done. Bottom line is that they are intended for the simple minds to believe and pass along. I have smoked marijuana for over 42 years and according to my doctor, I am in very good health and he didn't say "possibly", "maybe", or "could be". I base my opinions on facts, not on what some propagandists spews out for the ignorant masses.

"old dawg", here is a good link for ya backed by Phd packing medical researchers at a top university. One top cancer researcher has even referred to marijuana as the "holy grail" of medicine.

Somehow, I get the distinct impression that a few of you didn't bother to watch the video. This child had not eaten in (if I recall correctly) forty days, give or take.

I don't think that anyone on this thread is actually claiming that the hemp oil ALONE cured this child. What it's implementation did for one thing was to give him back his appetite during the latter stages of the treatment period itself when this child was at deaths door due to no appetite, etc.
(Nutrition is also a key factor in health, no one can deny that).

I also follow Tommy Chongs blog regularly. He has had success with HIS PERSONAL CHOICE of therapy. Something that I fervently believe we should all be entitled to.. Big pharmas have every single one of our "for profit" physicians in their coat pockets, and if you don't believe that one I've got a bridge over the Sahara Desert for sale that I guarantee you can catch a stringer of catfish from....

Those of us who are pro legalization of Mj are NOT saying that smoking herb or taking therapeutic doses hemp oil is the end all, be all, cure all. But the positive benefits of using Mj, many times while COMBINED the more traditional treatments for someone who's chronically ill, certainly seem to outweigh the bad.
