First-Ever UK Medical Marijuana Patient Has ‘Miracle’ Recovery
About once a day, 11-year-old Billy Caldwell could expect to almost die.
Thirty times a month, Billy would suffer a seizure serious enough to require a dose of medication and an oxygen mask in order to survive. Doctors were helpless. According to his parents, overmatched medical professionals sent him home from a hospital unhealed with a mortal warning—he could go at any time. Be prepared.
A terrible story—but a familiar one in the cannabis world. And since this is a cannabis publication, it has the familiar happy ending, but with a twist.
Earlier this year, after receiving a cannabis oil-based treatment in California, Billy Caldwell became the first person to receive a prescription for medical cannabis from the National Health Service, the United Kingdom’s single-payer public healthcare system.

Olivia Newton-John Is Using Medical Marijuana To Treat Her Cancer
Medical marijuana is becoming more common among cancer patients. Sadly, singer and actress Olivia Newton-John is currently dealing with her second bout of breast cancer. In May, she announced that the cancer had returned. But there’s a beacon of hope: Olivia Newton-John is using medical marijuana to treat her cancer. And if anything, she’s ready for the battle ahead.
The 68-year-old Australian import first rose to international fame in the role of doe-eyed, charmingly naive do-gooder Sandy in the movie-musical adaptation of “Grease.”
In 1992, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and had a partial mastectomy.
