Child's brain tumor before & after cannabis inhalation

Canada's Legalisation is not decriminalsation, it's just more legislation called Bill C45/46 that perpetuates the war on drugs and prison industrial complex. You could say Reefer Madness is also in phase 2.0, where the target of stigmatization and marginalisation now operates through irrational fears involving smoke, vapour, and children. Cannabis is not toxic; on the contrary, it's medicine many children need, so please read & share this short study showing how children smoked/vaped cannabis to completely shrink their inoperable brain tumors!

Excellent! Thank you for writing this up, and providing the full study to read, with links :)
It's cool that some of the research was done right here in Vancouver.

The children in the study were both females and Canadian. We'd like to make them honourary @GirlsofGreen. The 13-year-old in the study is now an adult.

Not only did cannabis shrink the brain tumors, but you can see it repaired brain damage. In the before pictures, the big balls with light shadow are tumor, and you can see hydrocephalus and brain swelling.

The following study documented cannabis inhalation to treat astrocytoma that could not be fully removed surgically, and no other treatment was used to shrink the tumors, so it has to be called "spontaneous regression" even though we're confident it was the cannabis inhalation, it can't be proven as cause in such a small sample size.

Other types of brain cancer like glioblastoma cannot currently be cured with either cannabinoid or standard therapy, but treatment breakthroughs are being made combining them (THC, CBD, and temozolomide) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30195736

Inhalation as a route of administration should not be overlooked in brain cancer. Many people assume suppository and edible oil are best for treating cancer, which is true, it raises the blood levels, but whenever possible, direct contact is best like topicals for skin cancer, suppositories for below-the-belt cancers, and inhalation through nose and mouth for sinus, head, and brain cancers. Since smoke is also a carcinogen, luckily we have vapour for this route.

It could be said, with caveats, that some children should inhale cannabinoids.
