Today we have Mykayla Comstock, a 7 year-old Oregon girl who is taking prescription pills for her
Leukemia. We all know its right to take medication,but its Medical marijuana pills.
wow. Sources say three days before Mykayla was diagnosed, her mother filed Oregon medical
marijuana paperwork for lime-flavored capsules, with cannabis oil filled for her daughter Mykayla.

Mykayla’ s mother believes marijuana has healing power,but doctors aren’t so sure it’s a good idea
“The first doctor was not for it at all,” Purchase told ABCNews.com. “She was rude and she told
us it was inappropriate. “Basically she blew up at us and told us to transfer to another facility.”

So that’s exactly what she did, and Mykayla takes about a gram of cannabis oil a day.
It’s legal for a minor to enroll in the Oregon medical marijuana program as long as the child’s
parent or legal guardian consents and takes responsibility as a caregiver.

Mykayla is not alone

There are currently four other patients enrolled in the Oregon medical marijuana program between
the ages of 4 and 9, six between the ages of 10 and 14, and 41 between the ages of 15 and 17,
according to the Oregon Public Health Division. Severe pain, nausea, muscle spasms and seizures
are among the top conditions cited for medical marijuana use.

In May, Mykayla strated to feel sick then suddenly developed a rash,a bad cough and night sweats,
Mid- July doctors saw a mass in the chest and was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic
leukemia just days later.

Now would you let your daughter take medical marijuana pills, if it decreased immunity,and stops
the pain? Doctors say it doesn’t cure the cancer it just decreases immunity
