Cannabis > Opioids

Just do the research. Start at http://www.NORML.org or similar. Or do web search and keep an open mind.

From NORML.org:

“Recent scientific research has informed us that medical marijuana access is associated with reduced levels of opioid-related abuse, hospitalization, and mortality. It’s time for our federal policy to follow science, evidence, and common sense

For too long, federal marijuana policy has rejected the reality presented by basic scientific facts. The Journal of the American Medical Association, Internal Medicine reports that “states with medical cannabis laws had a 24.8 percent lower mean annual opioid overdose mortality rate compared with states without medical cannabis laws.”

The opioid crisis demands real solutions, not empty rhetoric. If the Trump administration is serious about addressing this epidemic, then it is time for them to acknowledge what works: medical marijuana.”

I couldn’t have said it better.
