Woman ‘cures terminal cancer with cannabis’ and wins £84k while stoned


A WOMAN claims cannabis has cured her terminal cancer – and is now close to getting the all-clear.

Joy Smith, 52, was given just six weeks to live two years ago after being diagnosed with stomach and bowel cancer.
She claims that regular doses of THC cannabis oil, which is illegal in the UK, have destroyed her inoperable tumours.

Joy’s pals hooked her up with the drug after researching its medicinal uses.

She told the Convetry Telegraph: “I was taking it on and off. But when I’d been having it three to five times a week, the scans were getting better and then when I stopped taking it the scans showed no change.

“At first I was only taking a tiny drop the size of about half a grain of rice.

“Sometimes it takes hours to kick in and sometimes it’s straight away. You do get stoned and you get very tired.

“It made me want to sleep so I tend to just stay in bed when I’ve taken it.”

Joy entered an ITV competition while high – and ended up winning £84,000.

She is now calling for the THC compound – which produced the high – to be legalised for medicinal purposes.

Cannabis oil itself was made legal in 2016 after government advisers admitted it had a “restoring, correcting or modifying” effect.

Suppliers must obtain a licence to sell it as a medicine and it is most commonly sprayed under users’ tongues.

Last April, Billy Caldwell became the first Brit to be prescribed on the NHS.

The 11-year-old, who suffered from severe epilepsy, went seizure free after taking medical marijuana.

A Medicines and Healthcare product Regulatory Agency spokesperson said:  “Individuals using cannabidiol (CBD) products to treat or manage the symptoms of medical conditions should discuss their treatment with their doctor.

“MHRA will now work with individual companies and trade bodies in relation to making sure products containing CBD, used for a medical purpose, which can be classified as medicines, satisfy the legal requirements of the Human Medicines Regulations https://www.dailystar.co.uk › News
