ISRAEL: Yaniv Eshed is a big believer in the medical benefits of marijuana for children.
Eshed’s 9-year-old son, Aviel, is being treated for bone marrow cancer at Sheba Medical Center, the largest hospital in Israel. Yaniv Eshed told CNBC that he wishes he had learned about medical marijuana before Aviel was already six months into his chemotherapy treatment.
“I was not aware like I am aware now,” Eshed told CNBC. “If someone told me at the beginning that there was this option of cannabis, I think I could have saved him a lot of months of pain.”
