A Quarter of Cancer Patients Have Used Medical Marijuana

  • And with the punishing chemotherapy, fatigue, and nausea that often follows some forms of treatment, nearly a quarter of cancer patients are turning to marijuana to help ease their symptoms, according to a new finding published in Cancer, a journal of the American Cancer Society.
  • As marijuana consumption gains acceptance, a growing number of cancer patients are starting to view the drug as a viable way to cope with their disease.
  • To get more data on the perceived benefits and frequency with which cancer patients were using marijuana, Pergam and his team surveyed 926 patients at the Seattle Cancer Center Alliance.
  • What’s really interesting is that almost three-quarters of patients really wanted to know more about medical marijuana, and they wanted to get that information from their doctors, Pergam says.
  • The new survey, published today, serves to highlight that cancer patients are curious about using marijuana for medicinal purposes and there’s a dire need for more concrete scientific information so both patients and physicians can make well-informed treatment decisions, Pergam says.
