actually there are hundreds of cases like this. However, I never saw a single report or news article and only found this out when I Scroogled Marijuana Oil explosions.
Wow there are a lot. I was thinking, "oh crap!!" I don't want my home exploding. Yet the oil and butter my wife makes is wholly different than what the news is reporting. Apparently these folks were trying to extract all the THC and make Hash or hashish oil. That is BIG TIME illegal and I say akin to people cooking and making meth
What my wife takes has virtually no THC (what makes pot heads get high) and has high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD). This stuff works great for kids who have cancer and although the jury is still out on the next comment, it appears that this strain of medical marijuana is being used (in some pediatric cancer cases) in place of chemo and radiation and is seeing great success. There are even a few cases claiming this minimal THC high CBD strain has put certain cases of pediatric cancer into remission. I can only hope as my wife has cervical cancer
All I know is this, my mother-in-law was in tremendous pain and was always ill from the side effects of painkillers as she suffered through ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). This strain of marijuana allowed her to eat and live what little life she had left before ALS eventually took away her ability to walk, her ability to eat, to swallow, to speak, and finally her ability to breath. ALS slowly paralyzes the nervous system. What is especially awful is ALS does NOTHING to diminish a person's mental capacity nor awareness. The mind is clear and acutely aware of what is happening. She was one hell of a lady though and brave! Most ALS patients prefer to be intubated when they lose the ability to breath. However, even being intubated it usually will only extend life a year or two. She didn't want to live through that terror and when that time came she chose to suffocate and she was gone
