Asked at Massachusetts Street on August 10, 2007
“Yeah. Although some of the science has been controversial, there has been more than enough personal testament, especially by cancer patients, that using marijuana to relieve pain is far preferable to using heavy narcotics.”
“Of course. I believe that some medications have such horrible side effects that using marijuana is the best option for patients.”
“Yes. If someone is chronically ill, then they should be able to decide how they can best treat their illness.”
“Yes. If you are dying from cancer and it helps to ease your suffering, then why not?”
