Of course most medical personnel would advice against smoking anything at all ever, especially with leukema, but, if the person can not eat, is very uncomfortable or anxious, the weed may ease the discomfort. There are tablets called Marinol, that are RX and they have the active ingredients of weed in the pills and it might help relax the person and help them eat, should help with pain also.
