Medical marijuana helped cancer patient improve

I don’t understand why New Jersey doesn’t look at states with successful medical marijuana programs for help with initiating the programs here.
Oregon is one such state. My sister lives in Oregon, and was diagnosed with multiple myeloma last spring. Her appetite diminished to nothing. She lost 60 pounds and was in danger of dying, not from her cancer but from malnutrition.
Medical marijuana helped her regain some appetite. As she grew stronger, her cancer went into remission. She was able to tolerate treatments and use less pain medication.
Marinol, the synthetic form of marijuana, did not work for her. My sister is 69, not a pot-smoking junkie as portrayed in the movies of earlier times that convinced many — obviously our governor is one — of the evils of marijuana.
Marijuana deserves its place in the pharmacology for treatment to patients who need it. In order for them to get it, someone must be allowed to grow and sell it.
Shame on our federal government for not stepping in and making this happen. Shame on our state for pretending to be helping while throwing up roadblocks.
Support the growth and sale, and hope you and yours never need it.
