I'm a bit late on this one, but it's an interesting story so I thought I'd share.
Last month, CBS News interviewed the father of a 2-year-old child named Cash Hyde who had been prescribed medical marijuana while undergoing treatments for cancer. The CBS video on YouTube says that the boy is one of the youngest medical marijuana patients in the state of Montana.
Cash's father, who looks like a typical stoner type with long hair and bloodshot eyes, says that his son would go weeks without eating before he was prescribed marijuana and that the herb helped him to not only regain his appetite, but also helped to re-build his organs. Another testament to the awesome healing power of marijuana! Although the father's appearance probably doesn't do much to help people be accepting of his son's medicine, it's still good to see marijuana portrayed in a relatively positive light on a national news network.You can watch the full CBS video here.
