Landon Riddle. This young boy was struck with Leukemia which infected his whole chest with tumours which led to him being unable to breath.
Doctors told him that had an 8-10% chance of survival. Living more than a day or two looked extremely unlikely. Chemotherapy took up two months of Landon's life before he became incredibly sick and refused to eat any sort of food - vomiting up to 50 times a day according to his mother.
Doctors had given up hope until Landon's grandmother suggested something completely different - cannabis oil.
"We discussed all of our concerns with his medical team in Utah and watched Landon continue to suffer and wither away as the piled on drug after drug. Then my mother came across cannabis oil online,” Riddle told RYOT.
It was at this point that Landon and his family moved to Colorado where the treatment using cannabis oil was a legal practice.
It took a matter of days before Landon began to feel the great effects of the oil. Not only did he begin eating again but the daily vomiting started decreasing day by day.
“Our hearts were filled with joy that cannabis brought back the smile to Landon’s face. Landon started getting better and better! It was as if a miracle had happened! He was smiling again and started to eat again! It is atrocious that anyone on the planet would be charged for choosing cannabis over pharmaceuticals."
