Baby’s Brain Tumor Gone After Dad Puts Marijuana On Pacifier http://elitedaily.com/elite/2012/babys-brain-tumor-dad-puts-marijuana-pacifier-video/ Medical marijuana is constantly gaining more attention by doctors and media alike. Most recently, there have been several cases reported where children have been administered medical marijuana with very successful results. While mostly being used for minimizing the side effects of chemotherapy, there has now been proof that shows that marijuana may be able to cure cancer. Dr. William Courtney has seen just that. He told us of a story of an 8-month-old baby that was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The tumor was too large and inoperable, and therefore, according to regular procedure, would have to undergo chemotherapy. The infant’s father, trying to avoid putting his child through such torture, got his hands on some medical marijuana- applying the cannabis oil to his baby’s pacifier twice a day. Within two moths the tumor had shrunk so much that chemotherapy was no longer needed. Dr. Courtney stated: “My youngest patient is 8 months old, and had a very massive centrally located inoperable brain tumor. (The father was) putting cannabinoid oil on the baby’s pacifier twice a day, increasing the dose… and within two months there was a dramatic reduction, enough that the pediatric oncologist allowed them to go ahead with not pursuing traditional therapy.” “This child, because of that, is not going to have the long-term side effects that would come from a very high dose of chemotherapy or radiation… currently the child’s being called a miracle baby, and I would have to agree that this is the perfect response that we should be insisting is frontline therapy for all children before they launch off on all medications that have horrific long term side effects.” We may very likely be seeing medical marijuana used as a go-to before other, much more dangerous, currently acceptable methods are used.
