House Denies Relief for Criminally Ill

Although medical heroine, a far more addictive and dangerous drug, will remain available, terminally ill Missourians with cancer in hospice care were denied access to medical cannabis when the Missouri House voted down a bill specifically tailored to terminally ill cancer patients in hospice care.

The House may have been concerned about the terminally ill cancer patients in hospice care eating too many Cheetos, losing their motivation to advance in their career, or developing a fondness for Bob Marley songs. That, or they may have been concerned the medical cannabis may have been a gateway drug to – well – all the other drugs they will take anyhow since they can’t take medical cannabis.

The issue is mostly academic as it would likely take longer to bring to trial than they would survive for many criminally ill cancer patients in hospice care.
