Roque supports legalizing marijuana for medical use


UniTeam’s senatorial aspirant and former Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque made public that he favors the legalization of marijuana use for medical purposes.

If elected, Roque, a human rights lawyer, said he would file a bill legalizing the use of marijuana as long as it is used to help ease the pain of cancer patients.

“(I'm) strongly in favor, kasi po ngayon ako po ay nag-aalaga ng isa ng matandang dalagang tiya na nagpalaki sakin (because now I am taking care of my old maid aunt who raised me). She’s in pain because of breast cancer at sabi nga nila (and they said), I wish we could use marijuana in this instance para maibsan ang kanyang sakit (to ease her pain),” the former presidential spokesperson said

According to Harvard Health Publishing, marijuana eases the pain of multiple sclerosis and nerve pain. Patients claim that marijuana allows them to resume their previous activities without feeling completely out of it and disengaged. It also lessens the tremors in Parkinson’s disease.

Marijuana can also treat glaucoma and manage nausea and weight loss.
