Pot vs. Pills: Will Cannabis Help End the Opioid-Abuse Epidemic?

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, May, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

With the election of Donald Trump and Republican majorities in Congress, the GOP has vowed to move forward with its longtime pledge to undo the Affordable Care Act. While it remains to be seen what approach the Republicans will take to replace the ACA, overhauling the country’s health-care system presents a timely opportunity to address an epidemic gripping the nation: the explosive growth in opioid addiction and abuse.

The numbers are staggering. The total number of opioid pain relievers prescribed in the United States jumped from 76 million in 1991 to 207 million in 2013. In that time, Americans accounted for nearly 100 percent of the hydrocodone sales in the world and 81 percent of oxycodone sales. This explosive growth in opioid use has resulted in a surge of opioid-related deaths. In 2015, opioids were involved in 33,091 deaths, a fourfold increase since 1999 that accounted for 63 percent of all drug-related deaths. As a result of this increase, drug-related deaths for the first time exceeded the number of deaths from car crashes in the United States.

How Jeff Sessions’s New Drug War Can Be Avoided

Category: News | Posted on Mon, May, 15th 2017 by THCFinder

There is something you must always remember about Jeff Sessions, the attorney general who—on Tuesday, the same day his boss, Donald Trump, fired the FBI director overseeing an investigation into whether Trump, Sessions and other associates broke the law and, maybe, sold out the United States to a kleptocratic dictator with imperial ambitions—announced that the federal Justice Department would reverse Obama-era criminal justice reforms and seek, instead, to imprison Americans for petty, nonviolent, low-level drug offenses.

Sessions has had a nearly 40-year career in public service, and nearly all of it has been spent in the employ of authoritarianism. This move, which, if left unchecked and dutifully carried out by the necessary collaborators in state and local government, as well as law enforcement, will disenfranchise and impoverish millions of Americans. And it is only the latest and grandest scheme to achieve this end.
