Patrick Swayze has allegedly begun smoking marijuana to help him in his cancer battle. Sources say close friends of the actor persuaded him to try pot, which has helped ease his nausea, insomnia and anxiety. Swayze, 56, also gained weight after starting the drug.

“He’s recently gained a little weight and feels more normal that he has in months. Patrick was rapidly losing weight and feels more normal than he has in months,” a source says.

“Patrick and his brother Donnie get together almost every day and smoke a joint,” the insider added. “They have been seen smoking weed on the roof of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center while Patrick was getting a treatment.”

Swayze, who has been battling pancreatic cancer since January 2008, has not commented.

    let’s see, cedars sainai is in la, if memory serves. la is in california. in california, medpot is legal. the worst thing i do by owning red dawn is contribute to the lifestyle of john milius. (and i’ll concede that’s pretty bad) if it really was illegal, one would guess hospital security would address the issue. this exposes a real issue. some hospitals do not allow smoking anywhere on their campus. even if they do, in the winter this could leave you out in the cold literally.

    I live in Guatemala, in here is totally crazy mariajuana is consider as something really BAD! in here, people are totally ignorant, if you consume pot, the general perseption is that you must be a drug adict junkie and criminal, most likely a asasin or something worst, so you can guess what people think of medical marijuana, the subject is actually not discuss by anyone out there, except in close friend circles, we should legalize marijuana, and stimulate it´s consuption for medical purposes… we must start to fight to have the right to legalize marijuana here in guatemala…join our cause!!!

    Hopefully it will help him have a better quality of life than he’s been experiencing in the past year. Medical marijuana is certainly beneficial for easing some of the symptoms he battles with from the disease and medications.

    If the pharmaceutical companies have their way, people like him will be ripped off to the tune of around $30 -per pill- for Marinol (THC pills). I couldn’t believe the price pharmacies are charging for a 30 day supply ($800-900 per month).

    That kind of money goes a long way when purchasing unprocessed marijuana. Plus it is said to work better since all of the extra cannabinoids are included.

    If Patrick is indeed using marijuana to help out with his cancer & medicine-induced ailments, then good for him. He would be prescribed tons of medications to handle the combination of anxiety, nausea, and insomnia. His medicine cupboard would be chocked full of expensive medications.

    Instead, he can take one medication that is extremely nontoxic, non-physically addictive, gives him the benefits he needs, and won’t empty his bank account.
