A Utah teen was denied a life-saving transplant after he tested positive for marijuana, his family says.

Nineteen-year-old Riley Hancey was hospitalized just after Thanksgiving after coming down with a severe form of pneumonia that caused his lung to collapse.

According to a YouCaring fundraising page, he "lost all gas exchange function of his lungs due to scarring, as a result of the infection."

Hancey required a double lung transplant, but according to his family, because he tested positive for THC – the chief intoxicant in marijuana – he was denied a spot on the transplant list at University of Utah Hospital

The hospital’s statement read

/>"For heart and lung transplant, we follow guidelines set by the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT). For liver, kidney and pancreas transplant, we follow guidelines set by the American Society of Transplant Physicians. We also evaluate cases individually. The reason for these guidelines is that we have a responsibility to ensure our patients have the best possible outcomes and that we are good stewards of the rare resource of the donated organ.

/>"Generally speaking, we do not transplant organs in patients with active alcohol, tobacco or illicit drug dependencies or abuse until these issues are addressed, as these substances are contraindicated for a transplant

/>Hancey’s family searched for another hospital that would provide him with the life-saving transplant and two months ago, the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania agree

/>On March 29, Hancey received a new set of lung

/>"His transplant surgery went well and the Dr. is optimistic," the family wrote on the fundraising page. "There is still a very long road ahead so please keep Riley and company in your thoughts."
