Inamin ng vlogger na si Wil Dasovich na malaking tulong ang paggamit niya ng medical marijuana sa kanyang paggaling mula sa colon cancer.
Ang paggamit ng marijuana for medical purposes ay legal sa 29 states ng USA, kabilang ang California, kung saan nakatira si Wil.
Sa panayam sa kanya ni Karen Davila sa programang ANC’s Headstart kapahon, February 23, ipinaliwanag ng dating Pinoy Big Brother housemate kung paano nakatulong sa kanya ang medical marijuana.
Lahad niya, “In California, maybe some people don't know this, but marijuana is legal.
“Not just medical marijuana, as in like marijuana by itself...
"Every single cancer patient I met in the infusion center uses medical marijuana.
“Because the best thing it does, it's kind of like a miracle drug.
“They give you all these pills and stuff... I hated popping all these prescriptions they're giving.
“It works, it alleviates stuff, but nothing was like medical marijuana.”
Iminungkahi raw ng mga doktor ni Wil na gamitin sa kanya ang itinuturing doong miracle drug, bukod sa pagsasailalim sa chemotherapy.
Patuloy niya, “There's something about it. The best thing is that it gives you an appetite.
“When you are in chemo, nothing tastes good.
"Your favorite food just tastes terrible, so you stop eating.
"I didn't try it until halfway through my cycles.
"Chemo gets harder through every cycle, but it actually became so much easier once I've finally tried that [medical marijuana] and did it.
“And I didn't do it to smoke because I want to preserve my lungs.
"It comes in candy, in brownies, and everything."
Dito sa Pilipinas, nananatiling ilegal ang paggamit ng anumang klase ng marijuana.
Anim na buwang nilabanan ni Wil ang karamdamang una niyang natuklasan noong August 2017.
