Is medical marijuana a good option to help relieve side effects of lung cancer drug treatment such as nausea, appetite loss, and weakness?

Is medical marijuana a good option to help relieve side effects of lung cancer drug treatment such as nausea, appetite loss, and weakness?

I say 'yes': If they can obtain it legally, i would urge them to try it. For as long as I have been in medicine, I have been told about how effective many people have found this. For almost as long, the mainstream medical press -- not a hotbed of social radicals or fuzzy thinkers -- have felt that our cannabis policies are at best ill-informed. I am glad you are there for your friend with cancer. Obey the law. ...Read more

Whats better for your health medical marijuana or prescribed pills?

For what problem?: The problem with medical marijuana at least in my state is no regulation or real diagnosis is needed to recieve it, one time visit for licence, then its pick your flavor at the dispenceries. No follow up in many cases. Opiate medications can be problematic as well. Many diagnosis would not require either if properly evaluated.

Can you catch bronchitis from smoking medical marijuana? I am prescribed medical marijuana. I just started smoking it a few weeks ago. Now I have bronchitis. Could the smoking have caused bronchitis? .

You can't 'catch': Bronchitis. It usually is viral, and smoking can certainly predispose to it, more so with tobacco, but heavy cannabis use can do it as well. People with underlying lung problems are particularly susceptible, and you don't say whether you also smoke cigarettes. Some physician gave you a medical card, and you should return to them for an evaluation, and stop or cut back on marijuana until then. ...Read more
