When no treatments would work to cure his 2-year-old son Cash's brain tumor, Mike Hyde did something drastic: he gave the kid a dose of cannabis oil. Initially it was to get him to start eating again. That worked and now Cash is cancer-free.
Mike Hyde, who lives with his family in Montana where medical marijuana is legal, uses pot to treat his "attention deficit disorder" just like every other stoner who wants to get himself a quick prescription. He got the oil from his regular supplier. However, Cash was being treated deep in Mormon country in Salt Lake City, where medical marijuana is illegal. Hyde had to slip his son the drug without his doctor's knowing. Say what you will, but Cash immediately got better and just had his third birthday. When it comes to kids and cancer, any way they survive is a blessing.
