Medical Cannabis Laws and Opioid Analgesic Overdose Mortality

Stashed in: Awesome, Drugs!, Marijuana, Marijuana, cheech and chong dream on, Opioids

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

States with medical cannabis laws had a 24.8% lower mean annual opioid overdose mortality rate compared with states without medical cannabis laws.

So if marijuana is decriminalized, fewer people will die of drug overdoses?

Well then what are we waiting for???

i have no idea!!!

Lawmakers. It usually takes them a while to catch up.

really, we need to all be jumping on the bandwagon of making money in cannabis.  this industry is going to EXPLODE!

The main challenge is it's very hard to get licensed. States have long waiting lists to limit the supply.
