“bullet” Melissa Etheridge smoked pot while she had breast cancer.
“Instead of taking five or six of the prescriptions, I decided to go a natural route and smoke marijuana,” Etheridge says in an interview to air Sunday on “Dateline NBC” (7 p.m. EDT). When asked how her doctors reacted, Etheridge says, “Every single one was, ‘Oh, yeah. That’s the best help for the effects of chemotherapy.’ “
The sad thing about this is that in a sane world it shouldn’t even be news. It should be the equivalent of a celebrity saying “When I had a tooth pain, I took ibuprofen.” Of course you did.
But we’re not there yet.
So for now, I’m thrilled that she’s saying it on NBC and lots of media are picking it up as celebrity news.
