SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — At age 41, Ryan Bartell had already achieved so much: He was a two-time all-state runner, served in the Coast Guard, and was helping autistic children alongside his wife. He also had a son of his own. “Ryan called me on March 1 of last year to say that he had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer,” remembers Jim Bartell, Ryan’s father. The cancer was aggressive and chemotherapy wasn’t working, Ryan was in a lot of pain. “They had him on morphine and fentanyl, two very serious opioids, and because of those two drugs he was asleep most of the time to deal with the pain,” said Jim. Jim says that lasted for about four weeks until Ryan asked for cannabis. San Diego father advocates for bill to allow terminally ill to use cannabis in hospitals
