According to survey data published in the journal Pediatrics, physicians who specialized in pediatric cancer treatment overwhelmingly support the use of medical marijuana as a treatment option. The survey enrolled 288 pediatric oncology providers in Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington, and 92% of respondents were willing to help children with cancer gain access to medical marijuana. A mere two percent of providers were against all use of medical marijuana in children.
