Toddler With Cancer Takes Cannabis Oil
Marijuana was the best medicine for 3-year-old Cash Hyde of Missoula, Mont. At least that’s what his parents, Mike and Kalli Hyde, believe.
The couple said they defied doctor’s orders — and Montana law — to get their hands on the medicinal treatment their son needed after he was diagnosed with recurring brain tumors at 22 months old. “I’ve had law enforcement threatening to kick my door down, but I would have done anything to keep Cashy alive,” Mike Hyde, who said he has long been a proponent of the drug, told ABCNews.com.
Hyde said police sought out the Hydes after they publicly spoke about how Cash’s health benefited from cannabis oil. Mike has not been arrested, although he said police have threatened to.
