In 1997 my 44 yo wife died of Colon Cancer in the US. Her last days were excruciating from the cancer, radiotherapy and chemo. Despite not being legal yet her doctor encouraged me to find some Cannabis. It was a miracle. it allowed her in her final months to be nearly completely free from pain, totally free of nausea and able to appreciate our daughters before she died. I am a believer. If I get to that stage i would consider using it.
