Bill -- I flew commercial air cross-country alone when I was 8.

Those were different times, Rhys. We all were allowed to do things as kids that can no longer be considered prudent.

Also, it's hard to wander off an airplane or for an assailant to break into one.

8:13 A.M. Boy was fine but what if car transmission slipped into gear or the boy decided to play with gear selector. It is also illegal to leave cars idling in Colorado.That early in the morning heat should not be an issue so all windows cracked and car locked would have been much safer.

Hey guys; This is not related to the police blotter but since you 4 are the one's I want to reach out to this is as good a place as any to ask. Most of you know that I;'m 56 and grow up under a strict marine dad so there is no previous drug use. That is correct 5 years NYPD 15 years FDNY never once tried pot,grass wakiey weed etc.. etc. Now the question for all to answer honestly please. I recently underwhen brain surgery for GBM stage 4 brain cancer. Starting mon. 7/21/ I will be living in Denver for a month to get chemo and radiation. Now I know it's legal and probably cheap if I get the medical stuff but since I am so old school and have never used it before should I go smoke some marijuana?
thanks in advance for you help and concern Kevin

You are in my prayers, Kevin. May you recovery be successful.


jerry carlton 1 year ago

Kevin I will be praying for you. I am 70 on Aug 2 and have just as much experience with pot as you so I do not have a clue.


Kevin Nerney 1 year ago

Thanks Jerry , pray is really all I got it's out of my hands Happy birthday

I do not believe it is wrong to seek relief from pain and infirmities. Nor do I believe it shows weakness. Niether is it heroic to endure unnecessary suffering.

I no longer smoke pot because of religious and medical reasons, and because I just don't like the way it makes me feel.

However, I would not hesitate to seek relief in that or any other substance (moderately applied) if I was in your position.

I do not believe Marijuana is addictive enough to be of any major concern. It certainly is less of an impact than many other drugs widely used in hospitals.

I will tick a few folks off here but I will warn you: From my extensive past experience...Pot IS NOT a pain killer.

Others swear it helps with cancer treatment and I will not dispute a claim with which I thankfully have no experience.

I hope and pray for your quick and complete recovery. God is the Great Physician with whom all things are possible. His Holy Spirit is the Great Comforter. My advice is to seek Gods face along with his gift of modern medicine. I know I would rely on them both if I were in your position.

wow Kevin tough news to hear , my best to you in fighting this beast we know as cancer. lost my mom to it years ago, and local friends here as well. that said , no need to inhale ingesting is more the way to go. .......~;0) may the good lord see you through this battle.


Scott Wedel 1 year ago


Praying for you.

Ingesting is not a kind way for new users since they have no idea of how much is right for them. I think the vaporizing pens/cigs is the way to go. No smoke and a modest controlled dosage that allows you to stop before taking more than you like.

So sorry to hear the news Kevin. Prayers are with you and yours. As far as refer goes, first consult your Dr., then I personally would let the good Lord guide me in my decision. It could be a good case study that would benefit others down the road. I personally feel you have nothing to lose doing it. Never alone, be safe it IS a drug and enjoy.

Kevin, dont ask these overinformed, idiots, about MMJ as a treatment or relief for you cancer. Seek out a doctor that has experence with MMJ and follow thier advice. There is plenty of evidence of the benifits that MMJ can provide, but this fourm's regulars probally do not know everything(or anything) about MMJ. It has proven results that most in the medical world have been conditioned by the western medical complex to ignore. I would give RMR a call and speak to someone there to get a lead to a doctor that could give you real advice about MMJ's potential.

Good luck with your fight.


Phoebe Hackman 1 year ago

Pat's right, Kevin; these are not the people to ask. Go see the guys at RMR. They are extremely knowledgeable and professional. If you feel weird about going in there, I bet they would be happy to make an appointment to meet with you privately.

Best of luck to you!


Dan Kuechenmeister 1 year ago

So let me get this right. Kevin reaches out to this forum for help and advice on some thing he has no knowledge of. He gets lots of thoughtful and caring responses. The best advice may have been from Pat W. regards getting advice from a doctor and or RMR, but Pat's condescension regards other posters on this forum, whom apparently he disagrees with on other issues makes him appear petty. Great advice to Kevin, Pat, but your delivery is a bit off putting.


Pat West 1 year ago

Sorry that I have no respect for the opinions on this forum with regards to MJ use, and it's benefits or burden to society.


mark hartless 1 year ago

After all, he should only ask ONE opinion...


Chris Hadlock 1 year ago

As a cancer survivor myself, my heart goes out to you Kevin. Fight the fight and never give up. I am living proof that it can be done. (30+ years now). Talk with RMR, they can help I assure you. It works better than any pill the Dr. can give you to help with the side effects.


rhys jones 1 year ago

I am shocked, and my heart goes out to you, Kevin. I would have commented sooner, but I am in the process of moving. I would suggest the edibles as well, if you would prefer to avoid the smoke and associated pleasant buzz. Edibles have a different effect, almost negligible, compared to smoking it.

The doctors have probably told you to quit smoking cigarettes, if you do that. That's what they made my Dad do, when he was dying of Mesothelioma. They deprived him of ten months of pleasure, when he was toast anyway. I tried to make him some pot cookies, buy did it wrong; it was gritty and he didn't like them, although they did have a pleasant effect; I saw it.

God be with you, Kevin, all the best, and if I can help in any way, let me know. I've got some GREAT stuff!!


Kevin Nerney 1 year ago

Thanks for all the advice. The jury is still out as to whether or not I will partake. Just got back from the city (Denver) for the first round of radiation and chemo. 3 more weeks to go. Rhys--- sorry for your lose but hope you were about to cash in on that Mesothelioma windfall. My fathers second wife cashed in big time still gets checks 10 years after the fact and all I get is letters of notification that she got another check. But as they say that's a story for a different day.
