Health professionals who specialize in the treatment of pediatric cancer overwhelmingly support medical cannabis as a therapeutic option, according to survey data published in the journal Pediatrics.

A team of investigators surveyed the positions of 288 pediatric oncology providers in Illinois, Massachusetts, and Washington. Ninety-two percent of respondents reported their “willingness to help children with cancer access medical marijuana.” Only two percent of providers responded that cannabis access was never appropriate for children with cancer.

Full text of the study, “Provider perspectives on use of medical marijuana in children with cancer,” appears in Pediatrics.
