Could cannabis help heal the opioid crisis?

Cannabis, Pain, and Harm Reduction Panel Session

States with medical cannabis laws have seen a 25% reduction in opioid overdose mortality rates compared with states without medical cannabis laws. In addition, medical cannabis saves Medicare about $165 million annually in prescription costs alone.

Begin to unravel the truth about pain, prescribed medication, opioid addiction, and cannabis from an in-depth and well-rounded view of how cannabis is involved with reducing pain, reducing prescribed medication use, and reducing death due to overdose incidents.
