Schedule 1: Unlocking the Anti-tumor properties of Cannabis.

Incurable cancer, an illicit drug and an unsinkable woman's quest to live.

Schedule 1 is a documentary about the anti-tumor properties of Cannabis. Schedule 1 is also a film about my 4-year battle with ovarian cancer and my quest to survive this terminal disease. After 2 debulking (removing cancerous tissue) surgeries, 18 rounds of chemotherapy and a year of immunotherapy, conventional medicine does not have a cure for me. I thought I was out of options, but then I found a plant, a plant banned around the world for 80 years, Cannabis, and it shrank my tumor!

Will our collective prejudice about a plant keep us from embracing a powerful and novel target for cancer treatment? Cannabis IS medicine. Science has proven it. End prohibition.
