A bowel cancer patient who claimed he was cured by cannabis oil has died – four years after he was given just 18 months to live.
David Hibbitt, 34, was diagnosed with the disease in July 2012 and underwent chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.
Doctors told him the cancer was terminal – so he decided to try cannabis oil as a last resort and bought it from a local dealer for £50 a gram.
He had been concerned about using cannabis oil and even approached a police officer for advic,e but was told it would not be in the public interest to press charges.
Last January the father-of-one revealed he was cancer-free and put the class-B drug down to his miracle recovery.
But the cancer returned in March this year and spread to his lungs and brain. It claimed his life earlier this month.
