(Source) As he battles pancreatic cancer, Patrick Swayze has been using medical marijuana to treat the nausea, insomnia and anxiety from the chemotherapy treatment.
“He’s recently gained a little weight and feels more normal than he has in months,” said a source. “Patrick was rapidly losing weight because he couldn’t keep food down.
At one point, he was so weak that he needed help getting around.
“Patrick and his brother Donnie get together almost every day and smoke a joint. They have been seen smoking weed on the roof of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center while Patrick was getting a treatment,” said the family insider.
