GIVING cancer patients cannabis could cause their tumours to shrink, scientists have claimed.

In tests on mice, researchers at Texas University found sensors on cells which detect cannabinoids - the active ingredient that causes a "high" - can control the spread of the disease.

In mice with cancer the sensors were switched off, but when fed a cannabinoid mix the sensors were activated and tumour growth slowed, then shrank.

Experts hope cannabis-based drugs could be used to treat cancer. Raymond DuBois, who led the research team, called it "an exciting prospect".
