The Eagle Forum, a pro-family activist organization, stated in its Mar. 1, 2006 brochure "Facts You Need to Know About... Marijuana," on the Eagle Forum website:

Pills containing THC are already available with a physician’s prescription… Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy often die from infection because chemotherapy weakens the body’s immune defenses. THC reduces the nausea experienced by chemotherapy patients, but can be dangerous to these patients because THC also damages the immune system.”
