Yes, he tried preventatives and abortives. He tried all of them.

In order that I can establish that he legitimately tried to remedy his condition prior to wanting to control the pain via narcotics I am going to do some homework over the next few weeks and compile a list of the treatment regimes he attempted. I know for a fact that during the first three years of suffering (from ages 9-11) that he was not given any narcotics at all for pain.

One thing that he did find helpful was smoking marihuana (a non-narcotic), of course he had to procure it through illegal means; but, I see no reason why that should have been considered inappropriate either. For a history of why marihuana is illegal in the USA I invite you to read “The History of the Non-Medical Use of Drugs in the United States” by Charles Whitebread, Professor of Law, USC Law School at After you have read the article you will be able to have a rational discussion with me instead of one based on ignorance.

After I return with an timeline of the treatment my brother attempted and have posted it then perhaps then you all will believe I’m not misinformed or ignorant of this condition.
