Seattle, WA -- A musician who was denied a liver transplant because he used marijuana with medical approval under Washington state law to ease the symptoms of advanced hepatitis C died Thursday.
The death of Timothy Garon, 56, at Bailey-Boushay House, an intensive care nursing center was confirmed to The Associated Press by his lawyer, Douglas Hiatt, and Alisha Mark, a spokeswoman for Virginia Mason Medical Center, which operates Bailey-Boushay.

Dr. Brad Roter, the physician who authorized Garon to smoke pot to alleviate for nausea and abdominal pain and to stimulate his appetite, said he did not know it would be such a hurdle if Garon were to need a transplant.

The case has highlighted a new ethical consideration for those allocating organs for transplant, especially in the dozen states that have medical marijuana laws: When dying patients need a transplant, should it be held against them if they've used pot with a doctor's blessing?

CANNABIS KANEH BOSM THE TREE OF LIFE

Garon wasn't just simply denied because He used marijuana, the devil weed. He was denied because He used the plant cannabis, known as kaneh bosm which many people know and believe is the tree of life.
Garon was denied because He used the tree of life, which We're told on the very last page of the Bible ( http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?book_id=73&chapter=22&version=49 ) is for the healing of the nations.

Garon was denied because He used what God gave Him to help Him heal.

The Lord giveth the tree of life and the devil taketh away.

-For now. But this is a game still in progress and the house always wins; and this is God's house.

God is not a loser but the devil is.

Cannabis prohibitionists are losers.

1 Timothy 4

Apostasy

1But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,

2by means of the hypocrisy of liars seared in their own conscience as with a branding iron,

3men who forbid marriage and advocate abstaining from foods which God has created to be gratefully shared in by those who believe and know the truth.

4For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;

5for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.
