New Review Shows Marijuana Eases Opioid Addiction
A new look at some old research covering the medicinal effects of the cannabis plant shows that certain components of the herb could be a saving grace for those suffering from the grips of opioid addiction.
To date, there has not been a lot of relevant research conducted on this topic, mostly due to restrictions imposed by the federal government. However, there has been some anecdotal evidence to emerge over the past few years, suggesting that cannabinoids could hold the power to address the opioid epidemic currently spiraling out of control across the United States.
It is for this reason the scientific community has shown a newfound interest in putting the cannabis plant under a microscope.
Unfortunately, conducting this type of research is not exactly an easy task.

Forget Sessions: Meet The Real Marijuana Enemy in Donald Trump’s Cabinet
America’s marijuana industry has enjoyed several years of unprecedented growth. Our current multibillion-dollar boom times could last well into the 2020s, cannabis sector experts and observers predict.
But economics follow cycles of boom-and-bust. There’s a crash coming at some point. The major question for the cannabis sector now is whether the anti-marijuana zealots soon to be in charge of the federal government will be its architects.
Most of the speculation has centered on Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump’s choice for attorney general, whose nomination advanced past a committee of Senate Republicans this week (who had to briefly suspend their own rules in order to do it, a phenomenon that’s not at all a frightening slippery slope).
If Sessions wanted to, he could use the Justice Department to disrupt recreational marijuana legalization and wreck certain state’s economies in the process.
