Could marijuana help treat painkiller and heroin addiction?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

The growing number of patients who claim marijuana has helped them drop theirpainkiller habit has intrigued lawmakers and emboldened advocates. Many are pushing for cannabis as a treatment for the abuse of opioids and illegal narcotics such as heroin, and as an alternative to painkillers.

It's a tempting sell in New England, hard hit by the painkiller and heroin crisis. But there's a problem: There is very little research showing marijuana works as a treatment for such addictions.

Advocates argue a growing body of scientific literature supports the idea, pointing to a study in the Journal of Pain this year that found that chronic pain sufferers significantly reduced their opioid use when taking medical cannabis. Another study, published last year in the Journal of the American Medical Association, found cannabis can be effective in treating chronic pain and other ailments.

Category: Legalization | Posted on Tue, April, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

rhode island medical marijuana dispensaryRhode Island lawmakers are making a final push before the current session ends. One of the bills they are considering is H 7752, which is known as the ‘Marijuana Regulation, Control, and Taxation Act.’ It would make possession of limited amounts of marijuana legal for adults 21 years of age and older, and it would establish a tightly controlled system of licensed marijuana cultivation sites, testing facilities, and retail stores. Rhode Island was near the top of many lists related to states most likely to be the first to legalize recreational marijuana via legislative action.

A recent poll was conducted by Brown University which found strong support for such a public policy change. Per Brown University:

A strong majority of Rhode Island voters, 67 percent, support the state’s current law allowing the use of marijuana for medical purposes. A majority, 55 percent, support passing a law to regulate and tax the use of marijuana for recreational use, similarly to how alcohol is taxed and regulated. Voters 44 and younger strongly supported this change, at 72 percent, with voters 65 and older split — 43 percent approve and 42 oppose.

Poll respondents were asked whether they have ever tried marijuana. Forty-one percent said yes, with 34 percent of female respondents and 49 percent of male respondents saying they had tried marijuana at least once. Just 3 percent of respondents refused to answer the question. Of those who have tried marijuana, 12 percent said they had used marijuana in the past 30 days, with 15 percent saying they have used within the past year.

Although the U.S. Supreme Court recently rejected a lawsuit brought forth by Oklahoma and Nebraska demanding the immediate shutdown of the Colorado cannabis industry, a new report indicates the two prohibition states have not stopped devising war tactics to sabotage legal weed.

According to the Denver Post, Oklahoma and Nebraska have taken a clever approach to dismantling the marijuana industry in Colorado by petitioning the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to have their complaint integrated with a couple of other pot-related cases in an effort to bring down the hammer against recreational pot sales in a collective argument.
