Cancer Patients Say Marijuana Helps



Some patients say marijuana is helping them.

In ‘Your Health Minute,” any cancer patients living in states with legalized marijuana use the drug to treat physical and psychological symptoms of the disease.

Researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Washington State surveyed more than 900 cancer patients.

Two-thirds had used marijuana in the past and about a quarter had smoked pot in the last year.

Most users said marijuana helped reduce pain, nausea, stress and depression.
