Yet one form of treatment – which has a high chance of turning out to be the most useful one yet – is not allowed for use due to major medical as well as political restrictions.
This option is none other than medical marijuana. But while it is currently not allowed in prescriptions for children suffering from cancer, a new study shows that most doctors are more than willing to prescribe it for its medicinal properties.
Indeed, according to the results of a study that was conducted in Northwestern University, the vast majority of healthcare professionals would be willing to prescribe medical marijuana to a child suffering from cancer, as long as it is under the right circumstances.
To be more specific, the study showed that a total of 92 percent of all the involved survey participants answered in the affirmative when asked if they would help children with cancer in accessing medical marijuana. And from this group, about a third were qualified to write out prescriptions.
