Grandmother with Terminal Cancer Jailed for Prescribed Cannabis

A grandmother from Kansas spent 2 days in jail last week after being caught driving with traces of THC in her system.

Unbelievably however, Angela Kastner was not using cannabis recreationally. Instead, the THC found in her system had come from the prescribed Marinol she was taking to help treat the nausea from her chemotherapy.

Kastner has terminal colorectal cancer and has been using the FDA approved medical cannabis product for a number of years as a way to combat the pain from her illness.

It is not known why the grandmother had to spend 48 hours in jail. However, it is thought that he police had to confirm that her medication was prescribed before releasing her.

Speaking to the media regarding the incident, Kastner stated;

“I missed my chemo and I missed my doctors appointment. I feel sorry for the next cancer patient who has to go through anything I have had to go through. They shouldn’t have to do this at the end of their life.”
