In California, a cancer patient was kicked out of the hospital for using her prescribed medication.
Here's the thing: It was medical marijuana. Which wouldn't have been a problem, except the hospital had a no-smoking policy. The best bit is at the end. From the SF Snitch:
Told by her doctors at the University of California-San Francisco that she should prepare to die, that's what Raich, 46, is doing, one day at a time -- with purpose as well as dignity.
Except for Monday night, when she was summarily removed from the hospital at UCSF's Parnassus campus for using marijuana,according to NBC Bay Area -- which showed up for an interview that was cut short when Raich had a seizure and had to be rushed to a (different) hospital.
Now might be a good time to mention UCSF also happens to be one of the nation's teaching hospitals that researches marijuana's efficacy in treating cancer and pain.
