I have lung cancer...may I qualify for marinol?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

Officially speaking, Marinol is approved for treatment of AIDS-related wasting and cancer chemotherapy induced nausea or vomiting.

It should also be noted that if you live in a state with medical marijuana statutes (like our Colorado), you may be eligible for this as well.

I wish you well, BY
