A cancer patient claims to have been cured by cannabis.

David Hibbitt had been told he only had 18 months to live but now he’s looking forward to life with his new bride after being given the all clear.

The 33-year-old, from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, said this miraculous turn of events was down to him taking cannabis oil, which cost £50 a gram from a local dealer.

‘Friends had told me about cannabis oil and I dismissed it at first. I’ve never been into drugs,’ the father-of-one said.

‘I felt like the chemo was killing me and I had nothing to lose. I could not really accept I was going to die.’

He had underwent gruelling sessions of chemotherapy and radiotherapy before having surgery to remove his large bowel in March 2013, which were all unsuccessful.

But after his cannabis ‘cure’ he is now looking forward to the future after tying the knot with his partner of six years Heather Martin, 26, at a registry office earlier today.

The charity supports clinical trials into the use of the drug and a synthetic cannabinoid to treat cancer.
