2. From the same article read this.
"San Francisco patient Brian Klein, 48, (not a participant in the study) credits medical marijuana for enabling him to be successfully cured of HCV in his second attempt at treatment, in 2003-4. "One of the main reasons treatment succeeded was that I was able to stay on my medications," he said. "The first time I tried treating my HCV, in 2001, the nausea was so bad I couldnt even keep water down, and I had to stop after two months. Medical marijuana allowed me to successfully treat my hepatitis C and clear the virus."

Maybe your friend should consider that. I am look at a future that include the nightmare treatment too. His viral load may not be an indication of how damaged his liver is from my understanding.

I was researching last night about states and came up with this.

Many states are open to other conditions. I don't know what state your friend is in. I'm in Massachusetts and we have no medical marijuana but Maine does. We need a national policy.
