Hundreds of cancer victims In British Columbia are illegally using marijuana to control nausea caused by anti-cancer drugs. It works, they say. It works like magic, eliminating days of nausea and vomiting that conventional anti-nausea drugs fail to relieve.And doctors feel the patients’chances for recovery are boosted by the illegal drugs. Days of not eating because of nausea weaken patients and make them less responsive to the anti-cancer drugs.
