Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Gustin Reichbach, 65, has spent 21 years on the bench in New York hearing thousands of cases; Gustin continues hearing cases even as he receives treatment for pancreatic cancer. Recently Gustin admitted that he has been using marijuana as an aid to ease the side effects he is suffering due to the chemotherapy he is receiving which causes loss of appetite, sleeplessness and nausea. This confession was made in The New York Times when Gustin stated “This is not a law-and-order issue; it is a medical and a human rights issue”. This is a rather controversial area as in the past, admitting to just taking couple of puffs on a joint has been enough to derail some past judges careers.
There are currently 16 states in America that allow the use of marijuana for medical reasons, New York’s medical marijuana bill has passed in the assembly and is currently before the state senate. The drafted legislation will require a patient to have a licensed health care professional authorized to prescribe controlled substances certify a need for the use of marijuana to treat a severe, debilitating or life-threatening condition.
Gustin was diagnosed with the disease three years ago and has under gone radiation, chemotherapy and surgery, his cancer disappeared but returned a year later. The sheer amount of medication he needs for pain relief causes more undesired side effects such as nausea and sleeplessness. Gustin has found that the only drug that gives him some relief is marijuana, Gustin smokes the drug before he eats, as it builds his appetite, and before he sleeps, as it helps him relax. The aim of Gustin’s article was to spread awareness of how the drug can give those suffering with such disease’s a better quality of life. As an established pillar of society his voice may get across to those responsible for decriminalizing medical marijuana in New York.
