Man Denied Liver Transplant Because He Uses Medical Marijuana

Due to the illegal nature of marijuana at the federal level, people know they’re taking a risk when using, even if it’s legal in their state. But now a man could lose his life all because he used cannabis.

Rolando Rosa was about to receive a life-saving liver transplant in Texas when he was suddenly told he was being denied. The reason? The hospital found THC and CBD in his system. Rosa uses marijuana as a way to help deal with his pain, and as an alternative to using opioids. Now he’s in a waiting stage as it’s not clear if he’ll be eligible for a liver transplant in the near future. Rosa suffers from hepatic encephalopathy, and will likely need a liver transplant very soon.
