Texan cancer patient becomes medical refugee, moving for marijuana

Toni Anderson considers herself a medical refugee. She and her husband are packing their bags and leaving Texas for a chance to smoke medical marijuana.

“My main goal is to get out of El Paso because I want to live,” Anderson said.

Anderson has stage three cervical cancer. She has gone through chemotherapy and radiation, spending months on end in the hospital. She tried CBD oils while on chemotherapy and said there is a noticeable difference.

“Chemo that was a doozy for me but the radiation is what really got me,” Anderson said. “I cannot see how people do it without it. I'm in all honesty if I didn't have it when I was doing the chemo I would not have made it.”

Anderson said not only did the oil make her feel better, she also got her appetite back and saw the cancerous tumor decrease in size.
