NCI updated its page to include various studies revealing how cannabis “may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow” while also protecting normal, healthy cells.

In my opinion, anything that kills cancer cells is a good thing. It's even better that more and more states are legalizing marijuana.
I've never smoked anything in my life, and I've never tried any kind of drugs other than the legal kind (face it, I've had seven surgeries in two years.... I've taken drugs!). I've put my body through all of the "big guns" of treatment: the harshest chemo regimen, the most extensive surgeries and radiation. I'm taking a medicine that makes me physically miserable, and I will probably have to take it for ten years, because it blocks estrogen. My cancer fed off estrogen, so I'm all for starving the beast.
If, despite all of that, my cancer ever comes back, it's reassuring to me that there may be other options.
