Joy Smith, a woman in her 50’s who lives in Coventry, was given just six weeks to live her life after being diagnosed with inoperable stomach and bowel cancer in August 2016. But because she was completely desperate for a solution, with reluctance, she took tablets which are cannabis-based. Not only that, she also underwent chemotherapy. Why did she engage in these acts? She Mrs. Smith did because she read about a patient in the US who went into what we call ‘remission’ after she produced her own marijuana oil.
Nearly after two years, her doctors described Mrs. Smith as ‘the luckiest woman in the world’. But, these doctors of hers are baffled because her scans shows very minute an amount of the disease was left in her stomach, which gives absolute confidence that, with the use of the cannabis oil, the disease will disappear. While ‘under the influence’ of cannabis oil, Mrs. Joy Smith whom her doctor called ‘wonder woman’ won £84,000 after entering a TV competition.
In her speech, she is encouraging the legislation of cannabis for medical use. She said: “ I am a walking miracle, the doctor call me a wonder woman. Cannabis oil should be legalized for medical purposes- people are dying and chemotherapy isn’t curing them. Although she regularly takes the nutritional supplements ‘cannabidiol’, derived from cannabis and is legalized in the UK, she also takes an unlegalized supplement THC, for it makes the user ‘high’ by putting on unwelcome social and moral behaviors. Mrs. Smith was believed to have bought the cannabis oil online.
