World Cancer Day Logo We support World Cancer Day, February 4th. Cancer can affect people all over the world, including Las Vegas, Nevada. World Cancer Day was founded by the UICC (Union for International Cancer Control). It is an international day created to raise awareness and encourage better treatment, early detection, and ideally prevention.

You can visit WorldCancerday.org for comprehensive information and to learn how you too can help.

You can also visit the American Cancer Society. The American Cancer Society supports medical marijuana research and its potential benefits in cancer treatment:

“The American Cancer Society supports the need for more scientific research on cannabinoids for cancer patients, and recognizes the need for better and more effective therapies that can overcome the often debilitating side effects of cancer and its treatment. The Society also believes that the classification of marijuana as a Schedule I controlled substance by the US Drug Enforcement Administration imposes numerous conditions on researchers and deters scientific study of cannabinoids. Federal officials should examine options consistent with federal law for enabling more scientific study on marijuana.

Medical decisions about pain and symptom management should be made between the patient and his or her doctor, balancing evidence of benefit and harm to the patient, the patient’s preferences and values, and any laws and regulations that may apply.”
