Living with cannabis: The goal of helping cancer patients live in comfort deserves data now

In the election this week, voters said Yes to measures to legalize recreational cannabis (marijuana) in Arizona (60%), New Jersey (67%), and Montana (57%). Measures to legalize medical cannabis passed in Mississippi (68%) and South Dakota (54%). Patients with advanced cancer battle debilitating symptoms of pain, nausea, and anxiety, among others. Many patients have grown fearful of taking opioids despite experiencing severe cancer-related pain, because of the ongoing opioid epidemic.
