cancer view

My cancer view had more weed hope later than sooner with DAG approved brownies. It started with a look for an alternate route for a cure instead of chemo road.


What I found was a log of death in men who’d gone the alternate route instead of chemo, then switched to the hard stuff too late.


Warrior coach Steve Kerr, Cliff Robinson, and I all agree on weed, but my ‘research’ pointed to right time, right place. My health goals were to kill cancer, avoid infection, and not shoot black tar heroin which sounds like the next step after the Oxy prescription runs out.


Subbing weed for Oxy and benzos showed the power of weed for me. It was a welcome surprise.


So you know, it feels like a duty to show weed in a medical light, a positive light. Which doesn’t mean showing highly addictive substances in a poor light. But when you get to the end of the line, the end of common sense, any new promise is worth the risk.


That’s my cancer view on weed. It’s not pretty. But neither are hard drugs in service to hard drugs like chemo.


Does marijuana have thirty four cancer cures? I don’t know. Does chemotherapy come from WWI mustard gas? Same thing, I don’t know. Of course I could google it up. So could you. But this isn’t an argument starter or a sales pitch. That’s another blog.


On boomerpdx I’m giving anecdotal evidence for the effectiveness of weed therapy. If a first person account means anything is it still anecdotal?


Weed therapy didn’t start with a thirty year old hippie named Road King roasting a fattie in 1967 with Gentle Breeze the runaway teenager in Golden Gate Park. Medical wasn’t part of their plan.


Weed therapy started out of fear. Fear of addiction, fear of mental distress. The mental part comes on strong. Have you read about NBA star and one time MVP Derrick Rose and the emotional stress that comes along with a slew of injuries?


Mental problems aren’t all in the NFL with the head injury aspects of CTE. A guy gets beat up enough and that’s all they think about.


Cancer is like that. So is the cure part. It’s a beat down. Be brave, be a fighter, all of that, just know that cancer people are looking at something different than a happy ending even when they say, “Everything’s fine.”


Adding weed to the schedule doesn’t make everything fine; a weed brownie doesn’t magically turn everything groovy; a rainbow doesn’t appear.


 So what does happen? Does the cancer view change thirty four times? Does weed turn into a weaponized ingredient for cancer survival?


From my experience, it’s worth a try. Cue up some Dark Side Of The Moon and let it roll.
