“I use medical marijuana to relieve the pain of multiple sclerosis. Marijuana eases my painful muscles spasms and lets me function in the high-pressure world of TV, without the debilitating side effects of legal narcotics. I’ve tried many expensive, powerful painkillers in my struggle with MS, and not one has afforded me relief — not to mention lucidity — like medical marijuana does.” —Montel Williams

Marijuana And Cancer: Scientists Find Cannabis Compound Stops Metastasis In Aggressive Cancers
A pair of scientists at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco has found that a compound derived from marijuana could stop metastasis in many kinds of aggressive cancer, potentially altering the fatality of the disease forever.
“It took us about 20 years of research to figure this out, but we are very excited,” said Pierre Desprez, one of the scientists behind the discovery, to The Huffington Post. “We want to get started with trials as soon as possible.”
