Lifetime risk of getting #melanoma for an American is high. This is particularly true for caucasians. One in 38 white Americans will get skin cancer during their lives. Stats are better for African-Americans at 1:1000, but worse for Latinos with stats showing 1 in 172.

There is a paucity of research on cannabis & cancer. For skin cancers, there are not any clinical trials investigating the question of #cannabis medical efficacy. Rick Simpson was one of the rare patients whose basal cell carcinoma metastasized.

About 10 years ago, I was walking home from a slow-pitch baseball game and party with my team. I was a bit drunk, so I walked instead of driving. On the way home I was mugged from behind and woke up in the Rockyview Hospital in #YYC, with a #TBI #concussion. (1 of 13)
