If you don't care, then why did you reply? You brought absolutely nothing to the discussion. The means of delivering a substance to help some one really does have a lot of merit.
So, you don't care if she gets lung cancer later in life, as long as she gets relief by smoking it now. Yea, that makes sense.
Here's the kicker, her Doc will probably continue to prescribe her medicinal cigarettes while she's undergoing chemo. Win-Win for him, not so much for her.
Try to think things through rationally, rather than emotionally.

im just tired of hearing people say things like 'well smoking it is bad for you'...
clearly this girl/her doc/her parents feel that the OMG NEGATIVE EFFECTS of smoking pot are worth the positive effects she gets. that alone should be good enough.
who cares is there is a pill or 20 different kinds of pills she could take instead... she chooses to smoke. what exactly is the issue?

If you are an adult and you decide to use it, it is your decision. I have stated this in the past, however the problem I have is that there are people who still think "it should be safe because it is only a plant" and this is not true. Tobacco is also "just a plant" yet we know it increases your chances of getting cancer.
People like me only try to inform others of the truth. Heck, I have done the same in other threads in which for example some people have claimed that "it is safe and nothing bad happens to your body if you "starve for 2 weeks or a couple of months"...
You see, some of us would rather give all information to others so they are better informed. it is not because "we want to control you".
Remember the old adage "Knowledge is power". Last I checked this website is supposed to be here to give as much information and discuss such information amongst the members.
