United Patients Group Spearheads Cash Hyde Foundation Medical Marijuana Reform Movement

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 01, 2012 Medical marijuana information website United Patients Group ( has joined forces with the Cash Hyde Foundation to fulfill the goals inspired by Cash Hyde and his fight with pediatric cancer. The grief-stricken Hyde family made the announcement today, acknowledging that United Patient’s Group has done a phenomenal job increasing awareness of the plight of parents who are ridiculed by the media and law enforcement authorities and denied access to the cannabis-based products they need to keep their children alive, or at least living comfortably.

“John Malanca of United Patients Group is a master at balancing business, marketing, and PR, while proving time and time again that he has your back,” said Mike Hyde of the Cash Hyde Foundation. “His work ethic is beyond anything I have seen, and it’s clear United Patients Group is the best fit for our organization.” Last month, 4-year-old Cash Hyde died from the progression of a malignant tumor in his brain. Many say Cash was an unnecessary casualty of the federal government’s war on voter-approved medical marijuana. The crackdown in Montana, where the Hyde Family resides, interrupted the Hyde Family’s access to the cannabis oil which was keeping their son’s brain tumor in remission.

In 2011, during Cash’s battle with cancer, the Hyde family established the Cash Hyde Foundation to support and educate families with loved ones dealing with serious medical conditions (including pediatric cancer), advocate for progressive medical marijuana laws and policies, and increase focus on medical marijuana research and education.

“Working closely with the Hyde Family, we have become dear friends,” said John Malanca, owner of United Patients Group. “Their displays of strength and honor, and their dedication to supporting pediatric cancer patients and their families is truly noble.” Media attention of medicinal use of marijuana, particularly by children, is on the rise. CNN recently covered the story of Mykayla Comstock, a 7-year-old cancer patient in Oregon, who uses cannabis oil as part of her treatment. The use of medical marijuana, according to the report, is sharply criticized by many Americans who consider marijuana use recreational and illegal.

The Cash Hyde Foundation’s goal is to provide and maintain safe access to cannabis drug treatment to families and introduce and push for the passage of progressive and responsible medical marijuana legislation that the family plans to name “Cashy’s Law.” The foundation also advocates for increased medical marijuana and pediatric cancer research and also cannabis health education.
