J. Crouch accuses those who believe marijuana has medical benefits of
"not facing reality." Do you understand what "reality" is Crouch ?

When my grandmother was diagnosed with a very aggressive type of
cancer she had to undergo chemotherapy and radiation. It made her even
more sick and, having lost her appetite, she grew much weaker. She was
given morphine for pain, which made her even sicker. She had never
used drugs in her life, but decided to see if marijuana could help.

Within weeks of starting it she had her appetite and some strength
back, no nausea and less pain. She felt better and it showed. There's
no doubt marijuana helped her fight bravely for nine months longer
than doctors had given her.

That is "reality," Crouch! Using marijuana illegally as you did does
not give you the knowledge or right to tell someone on their death-bed
that they're "not facing reality." Maybe when you have tumors on your
brain, spine and practically every organ and are slowly dying, you'll
realize your "reality" is pure fantasy. Until then, maybe you should
stop pretending to know what you're talking about.
