Findings underscore importance of prevention efforts

I've seen posts about patients smoking marijuana to relieve symtoms. While this really can help, I believe smoking it is a complete waste compared to eating it!
My friend Billy has (or had) non-Hodgekins Lymphoma. A week before Thanksgiving the doctors found another tumor on his brain, and he was told he wouldn't make it to Christmas. Two days after that Dr. appointment he started eating oil made from the marijuana buds. Within a month his doctor in Dallas started flippin out. Three months later he is almost cancer free!
I have discovered a vast amount of scientific evidence to prove this, but it seems that there are people out there that would prefer the proof stay a secret. Has anyone else done research on this?

Hi, I don't want you to take this the wrong way... but when people sign up and their first post is written with a persuasive tonality it tends to get some of our "undergarments" in a bunch! That being said... hello, and I'm happy to see you are enthusiastic for your "friend."
I also agree with the oil, and not the smoking.
Glad he is almost free of it!

First of all. I'm sorry if I offended you, and anyone else for that matter. That is definately not my intention.
My enthusiasium is not just for my "friend". I have lost 11 members of my family to cancer over the last 17 years and my mother is a cancer surviver. My enthusiasium is for everyone who can have a brighter future because of this. Cancer doesn't just effect those diagnosed, it also effects everyone who loves that person.

What is this "Reefer Oil" ? Where can I get some?

Yes, it very much does effect everyone around them.
We get spammers on here sometimes, actually a lot lately! They will make an account and then put something up about this vitamin or what-have-you curing their loved one of cancer with links to some online store where you have to buy all this nonsense carp!
So, I'm sorry if I came across as a .... well, can't say it here, lol!
The "oil" can be boughten via dispensaries or made from the plants yourself! There are some good online articles that tell you the process step-by-step, but it takes quite a bit of weight to make a little bit of oil (expensive!) But I think it equals out to lasting about the same amount of time - if you were to smoke one pound it would last " x " amount of time = if you made oil out of one pound it would last roughly an equivelant to "x" - if that makes sense!

I totally understand. My friend Billy has completely changed my life, and I get kind of excited about this!

In regards to smoking it, there was a study done that proved that 1 joint of marijuana contained up to 50% more carcinogens then a cigarette. However, marijuana had no link to cancer. It seems that the amount of THC inhaled is only enough to counter the carcinogens.
The key to curing cancer with marijuana is to ingest large amounts. Eating a small drop of oil would be like smoking several joints all at once with no carcinogens.

So pot heads don't get cancer?? Back in my days of youth, a single drop of oil was enough to get a room full high.
And pot in doughnuts were called coma cakes. Potency increased because of cooking. (dope was pre cooked, then mixxed in).
The only use pot had was for nasuea. That and appatite. Get stoned, get stupid, eat and sleep. All good. Smoke it, eat it, what ever. No pot head gets cancer? Sure.
