In this week's edition of the WORD Cover Story, we take a look at medical marijuana. Should it be legal in South Carolina? Are there truly health benefits? We talk to several people involved in the issue. 

I spoke with a gentleman from the upstate who is suffering from stage 4 colon cancer that has metastasized to his liver. After multiple chemo treatments failed to have any real effect on the cancer, he has decided to fight this battle his own way. 

Patrick Gentry was able to speak with Eric Bedingfield, a local legislator who is an advocate for medical marijuana and believes alternate therapies can save lives.

Patrick also spoke with Cannabis Forward Project founder, Emily McSherry, about how she believes medical marijuana can help heal the body.
