Thousands rally after father arrested for giving dying daughter cannabis oil | New York Post

This isn't going to cure her but if it will ease her pain, I think she should be allowed to have it.

Unfortunately, the article does not state what kind of marijuana oil he was giving her. There's a huge difference between strains which are bred to contain different cannabinoids, some of which are reputed to cure cancer and some of which have little or no psychoactive properties.

That's what I'd like to know also. Guess the Aussie's aren't as progressive in their thinking about pot as we are.

I read that this particular strain had a very small amount of THC in it, not enough for any mind-altering effects.

Yep! I abhor a THC high but have used a high CBD strain with zero high.

Tommy Chong? If cannabis was effective in the prevention and treatment of cancer, that man would never have gotten it. Good grief.

Probably not very accurate. I'd guess that throughout his years of recreational cannabis use, he was using high THC strains. It's the strains that are bred to be low THC, high CBD which are reputedly anti-carcinogenic. Nice try, though.

Ridiculous. I hope the supporters are able to get something done and get him back with his daughter soon...and also to get her back on the oil, whatever kind it was. If it was helping, it was helping. Poor little girl.
