Meghan McCain, the daughter of the late Arizona Senator John McCain who passed from brain cancer in August 2018, recently expressed that she thinks medical marijuana could have extended her father’s life.
When speaking with Ricki Lake, executive producer of the pro-marijuana documentary “Weed the People,” McCain mentioned her frustration regarding marijuana stigmas, AZcentral.com reported.
“I just want to tell you what you’re doing with this is really important,” McCain, a co-host on ABC’s The View, told Lake. “I’m sorry, but it angered me when my dad was sick that there’s still such stigma attached.”
McCain referred to a study which shows cancer patients who were given THC and CBD as well as chemotherapy lived approximately one year longer than patients only treated with chemotherapy.
In her book, published in 2012, McCain stated that legalizing marijuana in the U.S. could benefit the economy.
