Cancer patient and actor Patrick Swayze uses medical marijuana to ease
The National Enquirer is reporting that actor, Patrick Swayze, who was
diagnosed with pancreatic cancer over a year ago, is using medical
marijuana to relieve the pain of his last days of chemotherapy.
According to a family insider, Swayze, 56, has found that smoking
marijuana helps with his nausea, inability to sleep, and anxiety. The
insider noted on the actor's slight weight gain as well as adding that
he (Swayze) feels more "normal than he has in months."
Pictures have surfaced of Swayze out with his brother Donnie looking
much healthier than he had weeks before.
"Patrick was rapidly losing weight because he couldn't keep good down.
He was so weak, he needed help getting around," the source told the
"Marijuana works extremely well for many cancer patients. It helps fight
nausea from chemotherapy treatments and may alleviate anorexia or loss
of appetite," Dr. Ron Kennedy of Santa Rosa, CA, said of the situation.
