Today on Cannabis Confidential Dr. Dina is joined by Brian Dwyer aka Dadvocate aka Waldos Dad. Brian is a Philadelphia father who says cannabis oil helped save his young child's life. He launched an online campaign hoping to raise $3,000 to finish a film about his son's experience after his cancer diagnosis in 2014. Brian's son Waldo is not 2 years old. By the next day, nearly 200 people had contributed more than twice that amount toward "Waldo on Weed: A Documentary." Brian wrote that Waldo became violently sick after beginning chemotherapy for a rare form of eye cancer and the then six-month-old stopped crawling, laughing and eating. Though it was against the law in Pennsylvania, Dwyer said his family decided to start giving his son cannabis oil and "we were absolutely floored by the results." Dwyer said Waldo stopped puking and stopped losing weight. Waldo is now tumor free and Dwyer wrote that "cannabis oil was one of the biggest contributing factors" to his son's success.
